One Way the Educational System Fails our Kids

March 15, 2021

This is exactly why my next book (coming out this fall) is about the what and the how to teach kids about money!

The title of my book is “SMART, NOT SPOILED: The 7 Money Skills Your Kids Must Master Before Leaving The Nest.”

If you rely on the educational system to prepare your kids for financial success, you’re making a big mistake. Yes, of course I believe kids must learn history, science, math and English, etc. However, personal finance should classes should be taught every semester from middle school to high school graduation and beyond.

Perhaps more people would have a solid financial foundation in their family if they learned the basics from a young age!

Happy Monday — make it a great week!
