I recently started reading for fun again. Well, I mainly listen to audio books these days, because being a parent, an employee, a spouse, a daughter, etc keeps me too busy to really read properly. Instead of being the anti-social, I find that reading made me more social. I discovered new ways of doing things, learned new information and have more knowledge to share with others. I found my love for books again.
There are many books about money that are tailored to young children. Here is a list. But what about books written for parents to teach their children? So I went looking and was surprised and not surprised at what I found.
Books for parents
There aren’t a lot of books on this topic – this was not a surprise, I wasn’t expecting any. But there is a handful – this was a surprise, given I wasn’t expecting any. So here is a list of recommended books about parents teaching their children about money:
(1) The Opposite of Spoiled: Raising Kids Who are Grounded, Generous and Smart about Money – by Ron Lieber
(2) Money-Smart Kids – by Gail Vaz Oxlade
(3) Make Your Kid a Money Genius – by Beth Kobliner
(4) The First National Bank of Dad – by David Owen
