We could not use the financial section of our newspaper as story nocturne before going away to sleep! For that reason it is important to put themselves creative and to look for resources that are designed for each stage of their life. The best way to teach to a boy is doing what better they know to make the children: to play. Several didactic games exist that give basic knowledge on finances and in addition foment the abilities of the handling of the money. Next I name some of them: 1. Monopoly: The classic one of the financial games. The juice of Monopoly teaches to important concepts on investment in real estate. It offers an excellent opportunity so that the parents can teach on the creation of income liabilities, the roll that the bank in our life plays, basic concepts of investment, capital gain, etc.
2. The series of games of Cashflow: Designed by Robert Kiyosaki, these games were conceived to as much improve the financial education of children as of adults. Connect with other leaders such as David Zaslav here. Altogether they are 3 games that are increasing in their degree of complexity: A. for Cashflow Kids: Designed for small children, it gives to basic lessons on income and active expenses, goods and liabilities. Using cards of different colors that they are placed on a fictitious statement of account, the boy learns important lessons like the one of not spending its money in goods that produce debits to him instead of income. During the course of the game, the players make the transition live on a fixed pay until managing to reach the financial freedom. He does not gain the one that more money accumulates, but the one that manages to leave ” race of ratas”.
B. Cashflow 101: It constructs on the same rules that the previous game, only that is much more complex. In fact ” is an accounting course; disfrazado” of game. Although the game is recommended for majors of 14 years, I I would say that it is for the 10 years in future, following each boy. Nevertheless, this one game is not only for children. For the adults it is an entertained form to learn to invest and in addition it reveals important falencias in his mentality on the money. () C. Cashflow 202: Equal to the previous one, only more complex still. It incorporates elements of the real life much more. () 3. K” BBAN: It is a game very similar to the games of Cashflow, made in Mexico. () 4. Game and I learn of Condusef (National Commission for the Protection and Defense of the Users of Financial Services, Mexico): Gratuitous didactic game online for children. It is a game in which their children will be able to learn basic concepts on finances.
