Raising Financially Confident Kids by Mary Hunt- Very Informative!
The idea to "train" her children about managing finances came about when the author's children were young. She gave them an excellent starting point for life and the use of cash as opposed to credit when she had realized her family was heading towards excessive financial debt.
She revealed her kid's plan, how she started, what methods were used and how each child did on the plan. The book has three chapters on how to best devise your own customized debt proof way of life family plan. This informative volume also has valuable information to begin to apply a plan for preschool through the teen years. Many interesting points and examples highlight this must read book.
I enjoyed this honest, sensible and highly informative book on making wise choices and implementing financial plans that will grow with your child. I have learned alot myself especially concerning entitlements, secured and unsecured debt. The question and answer session at the end were beneficial. There is something here for everyone, and whether you have young children or older ones or if you just want to change your priorities and mindset on handling money the reader will find much useful information to apply to their finances. I highly recommend this book very well written! I received a complimentary copy for this blog tour from Revell Publishing for my review.
