In a PSA video produced by New York Times best-selling author Beth Kobliner, McKinnon shows parents why it's so important to talk money with kids. Beyond the laughs and adorably incoherent stories lies an important message: We need to teach our children the basics of finances.
After learning a bit about loans and that candy isn't the best thing money can buy, McKinnon asks the children what they want to be when they grow up.
"One of my friends, when she grows up, she wants to be a gagitator," one of the little girls tells McKinnon, who's eager to learn what a "gagitator" is. "Do you know how little mommy bird, they swallow the food first and then they give some to their babies? That's what my friend wants to do when she grows up. She wants to be a gagitator."
