  3. The BizWorld is quite interesting for kids. It’s best that there is a guide like this for the kids to start thinking about leadership, business and success the earliest possible time!

  4. Hi,,

    Such a nice post.

    Yes it is good to teach personal finance to our kids by making them play some games. If the habit of saving is made from childhood on-wards, it is so helpful afterwards in the big life. Kids also have a habit of paying attention to only that things, that they like. It is best to make them learn by playing games.

    The options entered by you are good and the most I like among them is BizWorld. As it makes them learn good and more about financing. One can get help by your post in teaching a good lesson to their kid for life.

    Thanks for the post and keep sharing like this.
    Have a happy weekend.
