The New York Times bestseller that is a must-read for any parent!

From Beth Kobliner, the author of the bestselling personal finance bible Get a Financial Life—a new, must-have guide showing parents how to teach their children (from toddlers to young adults) to manage money in a smart way.

Many of us think we can have the “money talk” when our kids are old enough to get it…which won’t be for years, right? But get this: Research shows that even preschoolers can understand basic money concepts, and a study from Cambridge University confirmed that basic money habits are formed by the age of seven. Oh, and research shows the number one influence on kids’ financial behaviors is mom and dad. Clearly, we can’t afford to wait.

Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not) is a jargon-free, step-by-step guide to help parents of all income levels teach their kids—from ages three to twenty-three—about money. It turns out the key to raising a money genius isn’t to teach that four quarters equal a dollar or how to pick a stock. Instead, it’s about instilling values that have been proven to make people successful—not just financially, but in life: delaying gratification, working hard, living within your means, getting a good education, and acting generously toward others. More specifically, you’ll learn why allowance isn’t the Holy Grail when teaching your kid to handle money, and why after-school jobs aren’t always the answer either. You’ll discover the right age to give your kid a credit card, and learn why doling out a wad of cash can actually be a good parenting move.

You don’t need to be a money genius to make your kid a money genius. Regardless of your comfort level with finance—or your family’s income—this charming and fun book is an essential guide for passing along enduring financial principles, making your kids wise beyond their years—and peers—when it comes to money.
美國總統歐巴馬欽點的孩童理財教育專家,
提出每個成長階段的「生活理財真相」與建議,
傳授父母如何跟3-23歲的孩子展開「金錢對話」。

不說謊,不避諱、不拖延
與孩子談錢的最佳時機,就是現在!

若要孩子有錢,現在起開始教他這麼做。

研究顯示,父母對於孩子的理財行為具有最大影響力。英國劍橋大學教育學院的報告更直指,孩子到了七歲,基本的理財習慣就定型。但絕大多數家長總是認為應該等孩子夠大了,開始領零用錢,再跟他們談金錢。可是孩子幾歲才算夠大、能談錢呢?

不同年齡層的孩子,需要學習不同的金錢知識。
不同的理財觀念,需要不同的切入點來說明。

本書沒有任何艱澀術語、完全循序漸進,充滿許多有違直覺卻又中肯的建議,以「學齡前」「小學」「國中」「高中」「大學」「年輕人」來區分,傳授身為父母的你,如何教育3歲到23歲的孩子穩健又聰明的理財之道。精采內容包括:

�� 給零用錢可能會適得其反,傷害孩子的理財能力?

�� 超市排隊等結帳時,孩子吵著要買東西,該如何應付?

�� 該不該幫孩子辦信用卡附卡?什麼時候是最適當時機?

�� 如何在日常遊戲中,教孩子複利率、股票投資和指數型基金?

不論你的財務能力或是家庭收入多寡,都必須讀這本吸引人而有趣的理財書,教導你的孩子在面對金錢時,更精明、更有自信,為孩子創造理財有道的富裕人生。
