I wrote this book for a couple of reasons. The first being a very simple one: I want to make sure as many kids as possible gain the financial skills they need to grow up happy, healthy, wealthy and wise. As I explain later in more detail, like many adults, I never got this information when I was young, or in my 20s, or even in my 30s! It was only in my late 30s that I realized I had this HUGE gap in knowledge when it came to what to do with my money. After teaching myself and filling in this gap, I wanted to share it with as many parents as possible so they could share it with their kids.
Secondly, this book is my response to the overwhelming number of questions I’ve been asked about allowances during the six years I’ve offered The Money Camp programs. Parents bring up the question of allowances over and over again and based on their questions, I’ve been inspired to ask some of my own.
Years of researching what others thought and were doing with allowances helped me not only answer all the questions, but develop this amazing system that finally does what it’s supposed to: prepare kids to handle money not just wisely, but brilliantly!
This book was written for you, the parent or guardian, for your children and for our nation, because it takes fiscally intelligent people to become fiscally responsible politicians. To purchase your copy, download or printed, click here.
