I bought 12 copies and gave for gifts! Mar 29, 2007
My husband originally bought this book, and then I read and re-read it. We have 2 sons, (10 & 12 yrs old). This book REALLY helped us to set up a program for spending and saving with our sons. I like the way is is simply laid out. I would highly recommend any parent who is interested in learning more and getting help on how to set-up the whole money thing to get this book...better earlier than later! Be patient, it does work...it just takes time and persisitence.
User-friendly and useful Feb 8, 2007
We all spend a lot of time talking about how to instill proper financial values in our children. This book gives you step-by-step advice on how to make that "talk" reality. The sections on how to use the world as your financial classroom and how to instill your personal values through consumerism were perfect for our young children. Perhaps the best part of the book is that it is written in an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand style. Anyone reading this book will be able to use and implement these ideas.
