Sesame Street Is Teaching Kids About The Value Of Money

| Filed under: TV NewsWacky, Tacky & True

Sesame Street is taking initiative to teach kids about fixing our economy money while they're young!

The educational programs project called For Me, For You, For Later, uses games, videos, and activities to teach children the importance of saving, spending, and sharing.

They make managing money look so easy, even a pre-schooler can do it! So why can't the rest of America? Ha!

Kids will also learn that while sharing their money with people in need is good, sharing their TIME can be even better!

Check out the video above for the full scoop and to see how smart Sesame Street makes pre-schoolers!

Do U think this program will have any long term benefits for our county's economy?

    Teach them how not to get into debt as adults and live below their means.

    When I was a kid, we had Defense Savings bonds, and saving stamps. After the war, the programs stayed in place, gaining interest. I bought a cute Cocker Spaniel puppy with mine! Those 10 cent saving stamps really added up! My school also bought a jeep with donations that was presented to an Army base in our town. We had a big party and the soldiers gave every kid a ride. That's when I realized I was Gay. I'm a sucker for a man in uniform!

    They should tell them the truth then, America has only service industry jobs,and that's the very definition of a 3rd world economy, and that the middle class has been eviscerated.
