piggybank_mediumBack before our daughter could even talk, I wrote a column called “Stop your kids’ whining” that was all about short-circuiting kidlet nagging and teaching them valuable lessons about money.

Oh, what I didn’t know.

Actually, in hindsight, the advice holds up pretty well, mainly because I relied on money-smart parents like Janet Bodnar, now editor of Kiplinger’s magazine, and Steve Rhode, the Get Out of Debt guy.

But kids’ appreciation and understanding of money constantly evolves, so I’m always on the lookout for more great advice and ideas. Here are a few good blog posts on kids and money that I’ve run across recently and that I hope you’ll enjoy:

And here are my “5 money lessons for preschoolers” and Melinda Fulmer’s segmented-by-age “What kids need to know about money.”
