Book Review - "Raising Financially Confident Kids"

Mary Hunt, founder of Debt-Proof Living, has a new book out there for all parents, "Raising Financially Confident Kids."  This book is very thorough, yet very user-friendly and easily read and understood.  Money is such a huge part of life, and yet it can easily be consuming and lead to many problems.  Hunt stresses the importance of beginning at young ages with teaching about money, the basics of money and handling it wisely.  There are tips shared for how to work with kids and teach them different concepts at various ages.

This is an excellent resource and really has been thinking about the message that I am already passing onto my children about money even at their young ages.  The chapter focusing on debt is filled with great tips and ideas about preconceived notions in regards to birthdays for example.  Money can be overwhelming and I do not want it to be something that is to be feared and mishandled, and Hunt's tips will help me with teaching my children the value of money and handling it wisely including giving, saving and spending.  A must-read, I highly recommend this to all parents!

“Available August 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
