SEATTLE — Remember what it was like to be in second grade? We don't, either. 

It occurred to us -- as we continue reporting on the world of adults -- perhaps we have a lot to learn from kids.

So we asked them.

We stopped by Seattle's Northgate Elementary to ask a group of second-grade students opinions and advice on a wide range of topics: politics, finances, the environment... and even traffic.

Money is a topic that causes a lot of adults to squirm. Talking about finances can be quite stressful, and is often reported to be the biggest stresser in any relationship.

 But to kids, it’s quite simple: Just save!

If you don't remember what it was like to be in second grade, here's a bit of a sneak peak. Turns out, today's students are a lot smarter than we remember being when we were that age.

We'll be airing different pieces over the next few weeks, so check back here for the updates.
