Teaching your child to care about money (I wrote a book)!
My child always wants too many things, without caring how much it costs – so I wrote a book about it. I wanted to write a book that taught my kids and other kids the value of money and I wanted it to be compelling enough for them to remember what they learned from the book the next time they found their new favorite thing at the mall.
I talk about why I wrote the book, how I made it engaging, what’s in it, and how to begin teaching your kids about the value of money (with or without the book).
“Children have to understand that in exchange for working, you receive money. And with that money, you can buy things. Once you make that connection with your children that’s when they start to really understand personal finances”
