Thank you to Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not) for sponsoring this post.
Last week, I had the privilege of attending a Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not) live event. This book is by personal finance expert, journalist, and bestselling author Beth Kobliner and is based on the latest research from the fields of psychology, child development, and behavioral economics. As a young parent to three beautiful (wild) children, I want to expand my personal knowledge of financial responsibility and ways to teach these principals to my children throughout their lives.
Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not) is a jargon-free, step-by-step guide to help parents teach their kids from ages three to twenty-three about money. I personally hate math and generally anything that involves numbers (except discount percentages – those are my fav) and this book is easy to read, understand and implement.
For example, I love this idea Beth gives of having children disperse money into three different jars; Save, Spend & Give. This simple yet smart method teaches children the importance of dividing their money in thoughtful ways. The beauty of this book is that it is full of “teachable moments” like this one, that allows parents to learn how to teach their kids character traits that are important in all aspects of life. Such as a strong work ethic, the ability to exercise self-control, weigh our choices carefully, perseverance to work toward long and short term goals, and a generous spirit.
If you are looking for ways to teach your children financial responsibility, I highly recommend Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not).
This book is out now and available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. If you pick up a copy, let me know what you think!
