How to Teach Kids to Use Their Presence Online to Make Money

kids make money onlineThere are so many opportunities for earning online that it would be such a waste not to take advantage of them. If your kids have already discovered the wonders of the Internet, why not teach them the ways to make money online this early? Intead of letting them addicted on video games, make sure to encourage them to maximize their time to learn how to make money online while having fun. Here’s how:

Teach them to harness their skills.
The best way to teach kids to make money online is to allow them to use their talents and skills. Kids these days are never too young to start using their computer skills and earn money from it. A young teen, for example, has harnessed her creative talents and turned them into cash by selling MySpace templates. She has since turned her interest into a seven-figure business. All that before she’s even 18.

Help your kids determine their strengths and weaknesses and see how they can translate these into real life skills that they can monetize online.

Teach kids by example.
How do YOU make money online? Do you know someone who has? To teach your kids how to turn their online presence into cash, why not familiarize them with the process? Teach them what kind of opportunities exist, where to look for these opportunities and what sort of skills are in demand. Then let them see how these opportunities can be monetized.

Teach kids to recognize scams.
If adults can fall prey to online moneymaking scams, what more young children? Kids can be especially vulnerable to scammers, so it’s best to teach them how to determine whether something is legitimate or not. In a wired world like ours, this is a very necessary skill to learn.

  • These are all very good ideas…but, I doubt many young kids would choose to look for online money opportunities over playing video games or a game of soccer.

    Thanks for the post!

  • Yeah i guess it depends on what age your kids are. Young children should not be encouraged to surf the internet by themselves who knows what theyll find that way.

  • Kids should be monitored when using the internet. Unfortunately there are also many predators that target kids. However, you are right, there is so much potential for kids to learn how to reach their potential at an early age using the computer. Good article!

  • I think this is great idea. I had to work my way up making money online. It was about my only shot to make this type of money. I don’t have a degree in anything. But now with the results I have, I feel I don’t have to bow down to a boss or feel trapped by a degree. I have choice. I want my kids to feel the same.

  • This is a good post you have here. However, I think parents should do that with caution. As what others have commented, kids should be supervised by adults. There’s a lot of good stuff on the net and still a lot of bad. Guess this is where parental guidance should come in.

  • i started fiddling around with computers since i was 8 and i’m 27 now

    i do make money online with i think is a wonderful thing!

  • wow 7 digit figures for selling myspace templates. she must be really talented. when kids earn at an early age they learn to handle their own money and that also helps them mature faster.
