Kids and money book series resource
I was responding to a different post and thought I would add the link to these books here in Parenting as well.
I first read this book when my kids were around 8-10 years old (they are now 29 and almost 27). I really enjoyed the allowance method that was taught and used it for the kids, albeit not quite a strictly as the book. However, I think it really helped both my kids recognize the importance of money and making decisions around money. We also used it for my step-kids once we all came together and it worked well for them as well. I do wish that i had followed up with some of the recommendations around high school but things still worked out well.
Since I read it, there have been additional books added to the series. I can't comment on them as I have not read them but I hope that they would be as useful.
It is by a Canadian CPA but the information can be applied anywhere.
