One of the most important lessons you can teach your kids is how to handle their money. Unfortunately, for most of us, giving our kids a financial education is an afterthought. Where do you start? And what if you don't feel financially confident yourself?

In Raising Financially Confident Kids, financial expert Mary Hunt draws from solid statistics and her own hard-won knowledge and experience as a mom who made it back from the brink of financial ruin to help you teach your children how to handle money responsibly. From preschool through the teen years, every stage of your child's development is covered, including how to talk to them about money at each age, how to help them start saving money and giving it away, and how to avoid the pitfalls of easy credit and a culture built on debt.

Money can't buy your children happiness. But giving them the skills to manage their money will allow them to take control of their future and work toward successful and satisfying lives.


"Kids grow up and leave home to make their own way in the world. That's the way it's supposed to be. But these days, 85% of them come back to live with their parents because they're broke and in debt. Don't let this happen to you. Read Raising Financially Confident Kids today, put Mary Hunt's simple, time-tested financial plan for kids into action tomorrow, and you'll be on your way to growing money-smart kids!"--Dr. Kevin Leman, New York Times bestselling author of Have a New Kid by Friday
