As Financial Literacy Month wraps, there's one important factor we can't overlook: How to financially educate your kids. (In fact, that's the reason the Jumpstart Coalition for Financial Literacy started Financial Literacy Month to begin with.)

Our friends at the Sacramento Bee put together a list of financial Web pages for kids. Included in the list is our own Money Smart Kids section, initiated by Kiplinger editor Janet Bodnar, a longtime advocate of children's financial literacy. There you can find her advice columns, quizzes for yourself and your kids, videos and a special guide that covers the key money lessons your kids should master according to age.
