Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is your child a spendthrift? A hoarder? Or maybe, downright oblivious? Are there family money dramas you can do without? In Raising Financially Fit Kids, Joline Godfrey, one of the country's leading experts on kids, parents, and money, gives parents the secrets and knowledge she has gleaned from a decade of working with kids on financial literacy and business. At the heart of the book lies a defined set of values:
  • Money is a tool for achieving and maintaining independence.
  • Saving is good; accumulation for its own sake is not.
  • Spending is best done wisely and within one's means (though a bold purchase or investment may also be an act of wisdom).
  • Greed is not good. Giving generously is part of one's responsibility to the human family; shepherding wealth is an act of respect — to the past and the future.
  • Money is an energy (not a commodity) that can be used for evil or for good.
Designed for adults — parents, grandparents, mentors, advisors, and educators — concerned about raising children ages 5 to 18, Raising Financially Fit Kids is centered around a developmental map covering ten specific money skills each child can master by the age of 18 to become a financially secure adult. This map gives parents a step-by-step approach to helping their kids become habitual savers, smart money mangers, and responsible decision makers. More than just a money book, Raising Financially Fit Kids will help parents send their children into the worlds as balanced individuals with financially stable lives as contributing members of both family and community.
