    I’m glad I didn’t stay up for this. Its very repetitive and there’s an advert every five minutes, interspersed with Dani advertising herself! WHAT A CONTRADICTION! You tell people to stop spending then tell them to go to Amazon and buy a product!

    The website actually says teach them to save “AT LEAST” 10% of each dollar. Age three to five it state as activity -“Find three jars (or cans) and label one for saving, one for spending, and one for sharing.” So it does teach them to “share” It also states at same age “Encourage your child to think about how she could earn money by setting up a lemonade or cookie stand..”. There are links to money management tools and investment education.

    I’ve heard better from you, but this is a slippery slope to poor quality.

      HANS, I Really Hope you spread the criticism around to the Other Side of Government as well. That would be the Republican Dominated Congress. If you want to be critical of the Executive Branch and Not be Equally Critical of the Legislature Branch (Congress) then your criticism is Out of Balance. In my observation your criticism of President Obama to the almost Exclusion of Congress has been self-evident since President Obama took office. I was in St. Louis in Feb of 2009 at First Steps that You did All the Training, 1 month after President Obama took office and you were very pre-judging and critical of President Obama. How the stonewalling and incompetence of the Republican Dominated Congress seems to escape your critical comments is sometimes baffleing to me. I would hope in the future that you will share the criticism around equally if need be to both sides of the Government on the current state of Our Country. Point of Note, I am neither a Democrat or Republican but, try to Vote for the Best Candidate from whichever party and have in the past voted for both party candidates.
