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!

“Robin hosted a financial discussion for our North Toronto Moms Group, over Zoom, during the pandemic. During this time, many families are reviewing finances and planning for their families and education. Robin was active in learning about our group’s needs and executed a highly informative presentation and discussion with participants. Concrete examples were provided and we received very positive feedback. We would love to have Robin back in future and highly recommend her as a speaker on the topic of raising money-smart kids!”

Ronald Mayers

Robin was the featured speaker at our “Growing Up Affluent: Speaking with your Children About Wealth” event last night in Montreal. A crowd of 50 clients and “friends of the firm” enjoyed Robin’s no-nonsense, yet enlightening and entertaining presentation. The audience included parents of kids from 1 to 23, and all took some meaningful suggestions back home. The response was overwhelmingly positive. We got lots of compliments on our choice of topic, speaker and your presentation. Sincere thanks for your great work here.”
