Should children save money?

According to Financial consultant Alvin Wong, good saving habits start young. Teaching children to save is a skill that can benefit them throughout their lives.

“If you teach children to save from a young age, they will be able to handle their finances responsibly and reliably as adults, and they will have a nest egg large enough to see them through tough times,” Wong shares.

It seems that this young chap is going to take a while to get the hang of saving money, LOL.
