Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This combination parenting and personal finance book helps parents teach their children key money skills--such as saving, spending, budgeting, investing, building credit, and donating--that they'll need to become financially secure adults.

 

     A decade after Raising Financially Fit Kids first came out, the economic landscape has changed. Now more than ever, families view financial education as an important priority. This new edition will include advice tailored to every age group, so parents can set a foundation for young children, follow through with their teens, and even support twentysomethings at risk of boomeranging back into the basement. Godfrey's company, Independent Means, consults for families in countries around the world, and the new edition reflects this twenty-first-century focus on entrepreneurialism, the world economy, and the global citizen. With advice on figuring out whether your child is a spendthrift, a giver, or oblivious to money--along with activities for making financial fitness fun--this guide will help parents (and educators) arm their children with the money know-how they'll need to thrive in today's economy.
