As soon as they are old enough to start learning about money... that would be right after they can count to 10 or 20.
They don't have to learn and understand everything about bitcoin, just that you start teaching them that it is money and it is part of their vocabulary.

Our children run a booth at our farmer's market, and need to know how to add up totals and count back change.  Once they are 8 they should now how to do it.  By 10 years old, we (older siblings and parents) don't even watch them over their shoulder any more.  That is when they are old enough to learn Mycelium and send and receive bitcoin from a phone.

Last year, traveling with my 13 year old to his hockey game, we had dinner at a restaurant that took bitcoin.  He bought dinner for both of us with his bitcoin and did the whole transaction himself.  He had to explain and help the waiter a little.

The 13 year old, the year before, used to trade on Bitfloor.  He only traded modest amounts but doubled his 5 bitcoins.

A month later we went to the same restaurant with my 11 year old, who bought us dinner and paid for it with his bitcoin.

I think most kids are smarter than adults with technology, so teach them young, helping them for a while, then get out of their way.

13 is a very young age. How much did you earn until now?

I will not introduce bitcoin to him. I will let him discover it. That way, he will get interested himself.
