From Beth Kobliner, the author of the bestselling personal finance bible Get a Financial Life--a new, must-have guide showing parents how to teach their children (from toddlers to young adults) to manage money in a smart way. Many of us think we can have the 'money talk' when our kids are old enough to get it...which won't be for years, right? But get this: research shows that even preschoolers can understand basic money concepts, and a study from Cambridge University confirmed that basic money habits are formed by the age of seven. Oh, and research shows the number one influence on kids' financial behaviors is mom and dad. Clearly, we can't afford to wait.

This is a book that every parent should read no matter how old your children are. Kobliner is able to turn (what is to some of us) the mystifying world of money into something easy to understand. Her style and suggestions are very practical and can give you the confidence you need to guide your child in money matters no matter their age.

Every parent wants their child to be successful but we don’t always know how to talk about money in ways that will give them the very best chances. Kobliner’s book walks us through simple ways to talk to children about money including saving, spending, debt, insurance, investing, giving and more. Each chapter is broken down into age appropriate talking points and ideas from preschool through to young adult. Imagine talking about investing with your preschooler? Kobliner frames such conversations in a way that makes them natural and possible no matter your money knowledge or experience. Ultimately her book is about forming good money habits at any age - you might even learn a few useful things yourself! While some of the financial products she describes are American they can be easily translated into the Canadian context.
