Saving money is one of my favorite topics on the blog, and now that I’m a mother, I know it is important to pass these lessons on to my son. I recently discovered a new book that will help these conversations with my child, and I am ready to create a financially responsible adult!
Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not)
Are you ready to share financially responsible tips with your child? This new book, Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not), helped opened my eyes to a few strategies that will help as my son grows. This book is a jargon-free, step-by-step guide to help you teach your kids from ages three to twenty-three about money. I certainly needed these tips even as a college student! Written by a personal finance expert, journalist, and bestselling author Beth Kobliner, it is based on the latest research from the fields of psychology, child development, and behavioral economics.
Did you know that caving to your preschooler’s demands at the checkout line could make him more likely to misuse credit cards as an adult? This was MOST surprising to me as it is such a harmless habit, however, it can have major consequences.
I was happy to see that letting your adult kid move back home is a smart idea…as long as you both have a plan. I had to move home after graduation and before graduate school so that I could figure out what I needed to do next. It was just smarter to save money on rent that way!
