In a growingly complex economic environment, kids today need to develop financial intelligence more than ever-and the best way for them to do this is with the family.
While other books on financial education stick to the basics, Financial Intelligence for Parents and Children delves much deeper and wider by providing step-by-step instructions for engaging in age-appropriate discussions about money and finances with children at every grade level, from preschool through high school. It offers you the tools you need to talk about a wide range of money matters, beginning with the ABCs of financial education and progressively building to addressing more advanced concepts.
Topics covered include:
- Banking and credit
- Borrowing and spending
- College and retirement
- Gifting and estate
- Investing and wealth
- Job and income
- Risk and Insurance
- Taxes and economics
It is vital that children fully understand these concepts before leaving the house and venturing out on their own. This must-have resource delivers a systematic approach to helping your children enter the vibrant world with the financial know-how. They will become productive and financially secure members of the society.
