Money is such a common part of daily life that lots of people don't even think about it. That's a mistake. You need to think about something before you can take good care of it. And you must take good care of money to afford important things throughout your life. If you start now, you will be able to make the right decisions when you become an adult.
What is money? Every person has something they do well, but nobody can do everything on their own. So each produces what they do best and sets aside some for others who may need that item or service. To make it fair, they trade something of equal value in return. In the olden days, people would use shells, stones or metals for trade. Over time, a standard form of currency took shape. We call that money. These sites will teach you important things about money.
