Re: [Channel-talkeconomics] Workshop 4 Closure Section

Hi,

I found that my students got the most of our first semester course, Stock
Marketing and Investing. It was amazing how some of the kids did not even have
a savings account set up. The one point that the video reinforced for me was
to check in with the kids and ask them to walk you through the process they
use to get their research. I think that can be helpful in any discipline.

To pay or not for the kids' education....

I paid for my own but my wife had much help from her parents. She wants us to
be able to help the kids as much as possible. I want them to work and find aid
through scholarships themselves.

Do your kids live on campus? I know I want my kids to experience college life.
I think it is amazing that your children are substituting. Their degree is
going to mean so much to them because of what they "invested"

Like Bill I struggle with a budget. Do you two have any budget spreadsheets
that you find work well?

Regarding the part of the video dealing with behaviors of millionaires...
I find that sharing the behaviors of any type of successful person or group
helps students. What are the behaviors of good writers? good readers? good
test takers? good soccer players? etc...

Thanks again for the continued dialogue!
