Kids and Money – March 18, 2009



Welcome to the March 18, 2009 edition of Kids and Money. There were a lot of good posts. There were a lot of “spammy” posts, too, which I deleted. Remember, folks, I approve 99% of the posts here, but this week I probably weeded out 30-40 percent. That’s way too much.

So, please, let’s keep this focused on Kids and Money. Not Kids OR Money. But Kids AND Money and how the two are inter-related. Okay?
