This infographic makes a powerful statement. Thank you for caring about our kids financial education. With the example set by most Americans, it is time to turn the tides and start in the homes teaching our kids the value of money management. it's never too early as you mention - teens are spending $75 million!!

I have also created an infographic on this topic. If you'd like to take a look, you can find it here:

Great infographic... Have shared it on my facebook page. Recently I cam across a great site for teaching financial literacy http://www.claypiggy.com. I think it is a great resource as well.

Great infographic, thanks!

I love what Money Savvy Generation (www.msgen.com) is doing to help teachers, students, parents and kids with financial literacy.

That is a great infographic. Unfortunately, there is no mention of risk of savings accounts and investments, only return. That is why I find Prof Dheeriya's Finance for Kidz series most useful, as there is a children's book devoted entirely to risk and return!
