Hooking Kids on Internet Investing

from the brainwash-'em-young dept

Okay, does this one bother anyone else? Apparently a lot of financial services firms are targetting young children to try to get them to see and learn about online investing at an early age. While I think it’s good that children learn as much as they can, I’m scared that these firms will spread very misleading information. They already spread misleading information to many adults who fall for it. When do we get the first story of the kid who invested away his parents’ money?
