After thinking about this a little bit I think I will probably wait until they are in the mid-teenage years until you teach them the importance of security measures. It is true that people will try to steal your bitcoin if they have the opportunity, however this is really not something you want to be teaching your innocent child.
At the same time, I would look out for their maturity. The maturity of one boy could be different from another boy. I would teach them the concept of money, stocks, and investing because introducing them to bitcoin.

The best age to introduce your kids to bitcoin would be as soon as they can understand it. You don't want to rush complicated things on your children but it all depends on how smart and tech savvy they are. Kids are getting more smarter with tech nowadays though.

Yes.. that is correct. However there is always a downside to everything. Specially btc which is not regulated.

21 year olds nowadays are just like 15 years old before. So, we need 30 years to get them to that state of mind.

Not all the kids are the same, some smart ones could be introduced to bitcoins even at 12 years.

I was wondering they need to be able to understand Bitcoin and all the risks which I would be more than willing to help with but what is the best age to actually introduce them to it and allow them to maybe trade under my supervision? I have a sense and I know it's my responsibility to chose when they are allowed to trade and interact with others but I would like to introduce them as soon as possible and it will all be under my super vision.

So when did you introduce Bitcoin to your kids?

When do you introduce them of your current local currency? Kids are smart they will just get it along you will use BTC.

As late as possible. I'd even prefer to talk with them after they've found out about BTC by themselves.

Yeah, it sounds bad, so I'll explain.
This area is completely unregulated. Here the scams are something usual. Also don't forget about gambling. All these are best to get in contact with as late as possible imo, when you start knowing human nature better, when you know some basics to protect yourself.

My daughter just turned 9 and she has the blockchain.info wallet app on her iphone.  I am still teaching her how to use it and how to properly secure coins.   I am just going to be sending her little bits at a time so that she can learn to guard it herself...

around the time you start to talk about money to them. Don't get them involved until they have realized the value of money. Knowing it exist and dealing with is 2 different things.

One good thing you can do, is to teach them how to code or find a way for them learn how to. Can be really useful in the era we live in
