Intelligent money management for kids,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Money Doesn't Grow On Trees: A Parent's Guide to Raising Financially Responsible Children (Paperback)
This book contains great suggestions on how to teach your kids (and you!) money management skills from an early age. Both my 9 and 6 year old boys enjoy doing their chores, crossing them off, then budgeting their allowance money into 4 jars each week. My older boy has always been a saver/hoarder; I think this will help him realize it is o.k. to spend some money on himself (medium-term savings). My younger boy is the spender, and this will teach him to save (long-term savings). They pay for a school lunch each week (short-term expenses) and contribute to a charity. It does take some work on the parent's part: setting up meaningful chores each week and staying on top of paying the allowance money, but it's an extremely valuable lesson for the kids.
