Raising Financially Confident Kids

Mary Hunt is a bestselling author and a nationally syndicated columnist. Over the years I have enjoyed reading her tips and advice on handling money and living a debt-proof life.

In a recent column titled Don’t Let Kids’ Activities Break the Bank, Hunt says:

Twenty years from now, your worth as a parent will not be measured by the number of their activities, their SAT scores or their trophies. It will be measured by the depth of their character and the way they live their lives.

Isn’t that great advice and a good reminder?

In her new book Raising Financially Confident Kids, Hunt shares important lessons with parents on teaching kids how to handle money responsibly so they can become financially confident and independent adults. I think it’s a great book every parent should read.
