As parents, we make every effort and sacrifice possible to ensure that our children receive the best education available. Unfortunately, the school curriculum taught today is missing one crucial puzzle-piece that will make our children’s education complete - money management. In her new book, Raising Money Savvy Kids, author and entrepreneur, Kathryn Main, is on a mission to provide kids with the financial advantage and financial freedom through education that most of their parents never had.
Understanding concepts that revolve around money is a core skill for participating in modern society and economic life. Financial concepts such as debt, budgeting, interest, investing, saving, taxes, etc. form the basis of all the financial decisions, large and small. Financial education can make a huge difference. It can empower and equip young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to take charge of their lives and build a more secure future for themselves and their families. Supporting financial education for young people can be viewed as a critical long-term investment in human capital. Author Kathryn Main passionately believes that young people struggle in life and business because they are not taught the rules of money through their everyday actions. She advocates for parents helping their children to better understand how to value and manage money, having honest conversations that will upskill them in their future lives. Hew new book, Money Savvy Kids, provides a practical tooklit to help parents to have those conversations and to make a real difference in their children’s lives.
Raising Money Savvy Kids is a book for all parents who want to start giving their kids the financial education they never had.
If we don’t educate our youth on entrepreneurship and financial literacy, we are setting them up for failure.
It’s never too early to start educating your kids about finances, money management, and entrepreneurship.
