The Wisest Investment: Teaching Your Kids to Be Responsible, Independent and Money-Smart for Life
Most parents know that teaching their kids about money is critical to success in life, but studies show that many parents feel they lack the time, knowledge and experience to do it well. Add the seismic shift towards a cashless, digital society – accelerated in our post-pandemic world – and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
In The Wisest Investment: Teaching Your Kids to Be Responsible, Independent and Money-Smart for Life, you will learn why the wisest investment is teaching your kids about money. Robin will review the consequences if you don’t teach them, the rewards if you do and some of the challenges parents face.
Then she will teach you how to raise responsible, independent, money-smart kids for life, with three east-to-implement strategies:
- instilling solid values in your kids, to help guide and prioritize their financial decisions,
- capitalizing on “teachable moments” about money in countless everyday scenarios, and
- being a good financial role model so you can lead by example.
You’ll also learn what to talk about with your kids at different ages and stages, using what Robin calls the Five Pillars of Money.
The stakes are too high to leave this crucial education to chance. Raising kids with good financial habits, grounded in a solid understanding of and respect for money, will pay off in numerous ways. It just may be the wisest investment you make!
