Educating children about money is one of the most important lessons a parent can provide, and Anita Bell's Your Kids' Money is an accessible, down-to-earth resource to help fuel young people's knowledge and interest in their own finances. Created for adults who are responsible for children, Bell's guide is drawn from both her own experiences (she purchased her own block of land at age 16, and had retired by age 26) as well as from consultation with students, parents, and teachers. A friendly, unfussy narration by voice actress Jenny Seedsman makes Bell's mix of practical tips and educational activities engaging and stimulating for parents, teachers, and anyone with an interest in young people's financial futures.
This audiobook, developed from extensive feedback from students, parents, and education professionals, shows you how to educate your children to appreciate the value and uses of money. Starting with finances for the unborn, Anita works us through the expenses of pre-school, primary, secondary, and tertiary education expenses. And yes, the vexatious question of pocket money: how much, when do you start, and how to stop paying are all covered. With tips on balancing part-time work, study and sport, goal setting and career planning, she covers all bases.
Intended as a primer for parents and supplement to curriculum materials, and including hints on saving and spending, Your Kids' Money will ensure your children enter adulthood financially literate and perhaps even financially independent.
