Item description for Money Matters Workbook for Teens (ages 11-14) by Larry Burkett...
Overview Have your teenagers ever said that? Ever tried to remember what they spent their last dollar on? Ever examined their pockets for the hole their money must have fallen through? Ever begged you or their friends for a loan? Whether a teenager makes $2, $20, or even $200 per week, it's easy for him or her to blow that hard-earned cash and not know where it all went. But this book, a companion workbook to Money Matters for Teens, shows how a person can save money to buy things later, have money in the bank for big purchases, and even end up with extra to help other people.
Publishers Description Did you know that the average American teenager spends nearly $3,000 a year? Sounds like a lot, doesn't it? But with money gifts from birthday and Christmas, allowances, and part-time jobs, teenagers have gained purchasing power in this country. But when you turn 20, will you know where that $21,000 went? We like to have money, save money, and especially spend money, but few people put learning about money at the top of their priority list. As a teen, maybe you don't feel that you have enough money to worry about it, but even though you don't have much, you have enough to matter-especially to the people that sell products for teens Don't get caught in the web of marketing gurus.

Reviews - What do customers think about Money Matters Workbook for Teens (ages 11-14)?
There are much better books out there Mar 2, 2006
Hmmm....if you're a member of the conservative Christian right you might like this one. However, I highly recommend "Capitate Your Kids" for a great guide to teaching your teen to be financially frugal and smart.
Money Matters Gets a 5 Star Rating...... Jul 20, 2005
Good tool for teaching both Christian & Non Christian Teens about money. Easy to understand, includes examples and step by step instructions. We used this for a Money Matters Workshop and our teens thought it was great.
This is a religious based book Aug 25, 2004
I think it is important to point out a fact that this site leaves off in their description of the book. The author, Larry Burkett, is the founder and president of Christian Financial Concepts, Inc., a ministry dedicated to teaching God's principles for financial management.
This is obviously a big selling point of the book to a great many people.
However, it is something that people just browsing for a good financial book and workbook for their teens might not realize. For some of those people, it would not be what they are looking for.
I think this site is doing a great disservice to not make this very clear.
Sending teens out into the world with a clear understanding of finances and financial responsibility is very important.
If a biblical bent to finances suits your beliefs and lifestyles, take a look at this book.
If this aspect does not appeal to you, you would be better off looking elsewhere.
Religious Brainwash Jun 19, 2004
This book has contents that speculate with the bible concept of money, and has subliminal christian messages for teens.Is a teen brainwasher, intercalating financial advise with christian believes.This is a religious book.
Presents excellent advice in a format that appeals to teens. Jul 23, 1999
What a user-friendly book! Easy-to-read print, lots of cartoon-style illustrations, short chapters, easy-to-follow activities in each chapter - all that and excellent information, too! Just the thing for my 16-year-old. When I saw this book I knew it would be a hit, but I didn't know just how big a hit. My kids choose their favorite subjects to work on first each day, and this book has become number one.
But, does it work? I'll say it does. Chapter 5, "Money Management Made Easy," introduces Larry Burkett's envelope system for managing money. As soon as my son read this, he gathered his envelopes and he's been using the system faithfully ever since. If that was all he got out of this book it would be worth the price. But he is also learning how banks and checking accounts work, how loans and credit cards work, the dangers of borrowing, how to buy a car, and even how to get and keep a job.
Larry Burkett's money management principles are very scripturally sound. Although we have tried to raise our children by demonstrating and teaching sound principles, sometimes hearing from an "expert" can be just what it takes to convince them to do what they should do because it's the right thing to do, not just because Mom and Dad say so. I think that is what the bottom line will be with this great book. I am very happy with it and recommend it highly. ~sbd
