Customer Review

on August 12, 2012
I wanted to read this book for one main reason - to teach my children how to manage their finances. When I was a child, my parents never taught me; but there were a lot of things parents didn't teach their children that I am grateful we teach our children now!

I remember getting myself into trouble financially because I didn't want to tell my children I didn't have the money to buy something. Nowadays, I include them in the decision making. I teach them that we have a certain amount to spend on "us" over a two week period (my pay days) and when we choose to spend it all in the first week, we don't have anything left to spend in the second. It's truly amazing how they accept the idea and we move on to doing something that's free. We are learning to enjoy what we have together.

I love the way this book breaks down age appropriate teachings, but doesn't forget to mention that every family is different (and every plan can be personalized to fit your individual family!). I also like the step by step processes, lists, and question and answer sections.

I became a grandmother this past Friday evening (August 10th) and plan to pass this book on to my son and his wife. To be honest, they could teach me a thing or two about finances - they are extremely disciplined and have already mentioned their intention of teaching their daughter how to be financially responsible.

Available August 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
