Child-Side Economics was written to assist teachers in helping their students learn some economic principles and the roles economics play in our daily lives. Most of the topics are considered survival skills of this century and the next. Students need to know about the history of the monetary system here in the United States and throughout the world. Using “Adam’s Adventures” we can instruct them on how they control their money rather than the opposite. Today more than ever, economics must be included in the curriculum. These are survival skills. Making a budget and living within the budget means survival. Learning to shop for groceries or a pair of jeans today, means a learned consumer tomorrow. This learning and understanding cannot wait until the student graduates high school or college. It must be now.
