The cycle of poverty is a complex issue. Those that are living at the poverty level may struggle to keep food on the table, pay rent, get to a job (if they cant pay for transportation) or hold down a job due to such things as childcare. I think it would be beneficial for young kids to understand the management of money, in its simplest terms. If they grow up with the responsible concept of money, they can do their best to discipline themselves to budget when they become an adult.
