    What I wonder about is the girl wearing the big ring on her finger. Easily over $1000. This is a high school junior. Sort of ironic to have a high school girl wearing a massive ring in an article about saving money and being thrifty.

    I have done a lot to help my children learn about how money works, to manage money, spend it and invest it. I even bought an interesting board game that teaches you about managing money. I recently purchased 2 copies of an interesting book: for Children 'how to become’ Rich, successful & do well in school.

    I believe parents should do more to help children when it comes to finances. I remember getting bombarded by credit companies the minute I turned 18.

    Do they have any open seats available for this class?

    I know 536 people in Washington, DC, who desperately need to learn these basic financial skills, and SOON!

    Well done to the legislature for requiring the class, and for the schools to follow the law.

    Another scam everyone should be aware of is the Amway Tool Scam. Google StopTheAmwayToolScam for more information, and forward this to every non-IBO you know, so they don't get scammed.
