Description

Practical and fun strategies that parents, teachers, and mentors in all capacities can use to teach kids-and themselves-how to be financially savvy and, ultimately, secure

""Stawski has given parents a magnificently comprehensive guide to the difficult issue of kids and money. . . . Following his leadership will significantly diminish the problem of raising children who are consumers before they are producers in our society. If you are a parent, this practical book will help you rethink what you intend as your legacy.""-J. Zink, PhD, Family Therapist

""Too frequently, parents are reluctant to discuss financial issues with their children while they are growing up, so when they leave home they are totally unprepared to make some of the difficult financial decisions that young adults have to make. This book is about much more than teaching kids about money-it is an easy-to-understand guide on how to help your children grow up to become responsible, clear-thinking individuals who can make wise decisions.""-Gary Baughman, Retired President and CEO, Fisher-Price

""Stawski has provided an excellent roadmap for parents who want their children to have a clear perspective on the key factors of life including, but certainly not limited to, money. This book is loaded with keen insights based on 'old-style values' that will give parents a head start.""-James G. Buick, President and CEO, Zondervan Corp.

""More than a how-to-balance-your-checkbook book, this book will establish the benchmark from which all other family finance books will be measured. Read it if you want a stronger family . . . if you want your children to be more responsible . . . and if you want to be educated and entertained.""-Kim Cameron, Dean, Weatherhead School of ManagementCase Western Reserve University
