Teaching kids business is not taught in schools. Business is one of the most relevant subjects kids need to learn, but it is not taught. If you do a search on books for teaching kids business you will find this is not yet a developed book genre. It is interesting that; business is the most widely practiced activity around the world, every child will either work in a business or buy from a business, but we currently have limited resources to teach kids business.
There are many questions that parents will have on how to take on this important responsibility. Many more questions will arise from kids, as we make them aware of business and start these discussions. What if we started these conversations at an earlier age, and helped them develop these valuable life skills. These life skills will help them in their daily lives, and help prepare them for their future in business. Developing thinking, communication skills, time management, decision making, selling skills and many other skills will help them succeed in school both and business.
Jeff M. Brown founder of TeachingKidsBusiness.com has written a second book called “Teaching Kids Business: Why, What, When, Where, How & Impact” to help parents begin to teach their children business. The book is available at online bookstores. Links are available at www.teachingkidsbusiness.com.
The book provides simple and effective strategies and activities to develop life skills and experiences that prepare kids of all ages for business. The book provides progressive thinking, ideas to implement, teaching techniques, and a solid framework to teach kids business. The use of this content will help to shape an action plan for teaching kids business, encouraging business conversations, helping children to become more aware and interested in business, creating opportunities for skill development and experience, and instilling confidence and a higher level of respect in children through business techniques and skills.
