Kids and Trading

Kids and Trading

How young is too young to learn the secrets of the markets?

How much of a difference would it make to your children’s lives if you could inspire them to become a trader, and take control of their financial lives?

Louise Bedford is a mother of two and she shares her thoughts on trading, motherhood, and how to get your kids to focus on becoming great traders, whatever their ages. Listen as she answers a vital listener question on how to get your children inspired to begin their trading journey.

Key Concepts We Discuss in this Episode

  • Children learn by watching us. They will follow the example that we set.
  • From the age of 2 years old, you can encourage your child to colour in charts, and to set up an ‘office’ which resembles your workspace.
  • From four to eleven, find something that the child values highly, such as the latest ‘Nintendo’ game, and set a goal that you can both work towards to achieve it.
  • Teenagers can often be incredibly interested in anything with the potential to create an income, so use this motivation.
  • Ask your child’s school whether share trading can be added as a special interest topic as a part of the maths or commerce syllabus.
  • The Australian Stock Exchange runs a ‘School’s Sharemarket Competition’ each year via the internet – where both you and your children can compare your sharemarket performance against school children from all parts of Australia.
