4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book, easy read September 23, 2012

My daughters are 5 and 2 right now, and I'm starting to teach them about money. This book is a big help, full of useful tips that you can really apply (well, not all of them). I especially agree with setting up the Commission System, and I'm trying to get that done now. I also agree with the money management--save, spend, give--and with making sure that your child gives thanks when receiving money as gifts.

This book was an easy read, and I'm glad I got it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for younger kids. Quick and easy read. January 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have a 5-year-old son that I have been working with lately to learn the responsibility of money management. When I saw this book I thought it was perfect. A quick easy read, this book has some useful tips on how to help your younger kids learn about money.

I never had allowance growing up as a kid and I hated my parents for it. All my friends in school received a set amount of money each week, just because. I thought it was unfair. If I wanted money, I had to earn it. My sister and I would pick berries and sell them to neighbors or at a stand we made by the street. While I was jealous of my friends, I am thankful now for what my parents taught me. I am happy to see this book does not use allowance. Instead it calls earnings a `Commission System' and encourages children to earn their money as grown ups do in life.

A lot of the book is simple money management things you already knew, like chores and having the kids save for more important toys. However it does have some tips which I may not have thought of, such as using Tupperware boxes to sort coins and the importance of giving thanks.

Overall it is a good quick easy read that could give you some new ideas on how to help your young child lean about money and savings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Teaching Kids Responsibility February 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is great because it's very practical. The author gives a step by step process with personal examples on how to start teaching your children how to understand and use money responsibly. It's an easy read and doesn't take much to implement. I'm looking forward to using this method to teach my kids about gratitude, generosity and responsibility...characteristics that seem to be lacking more and more in the younger generations (my own included).

Quick read on tips and reasons for teaching kids early and often, about how to deal with money for life. I also liked that the author had other resources listed at the end, since each of us have to do what works in our family and situation.

Although this book was helpful to a degree, it was written more for parents of little children. My kids are older and would think some of these money saving methods as cheesy.

More About the Author

Outside of money for candy and toys most of us do not think about money and investing until college or sometimes even later! Andrea, however did not follow that timeline, in fact her passion for personal finance began at an early age--with her first stock purchase in sixth grade!

Andrea's money education continued at the University of Iowa with a degree in finance. Upon completion Andrea took a position in banking. With additional career opportunities to follow that involved working in corporate finance with budgets and forecasts, taxes, and retirement investing both in the United States and abroad in Australia. During this time Andrea completed her MBA from Creighton University.

Upon returning to the United States Andrea decided to make the jump to entrepreneurship and was hooked. After starting two businesses (event planning and wine tasting classes), Andrea realized that her true calling was to help people achieve their goals. However she also knew from her financial experience that the one thing in most people's way to their goals is their money. Your money and life fulfillment are intertwined and both must be healthy and on target in order to embrace your personal power and achieve your goals.

Because of this belief Andrea formed Smart Step, Inc in 2007 to educate people about money and to help them make the world a better place. Knowing that many times money problems have more to do with behavior Andrea became a certified coach in 2009 so that in addition to education she can help others overcome the mental and behavior road blocks.

Smart Step offers classes, books, one-on-one coaching and a personal finance blog.

In her spare time she enjoys time with her husband and son. She also enjoys the pool, reading, creating new ideas for more businesses and of course learning even more about personal finance!
