Piggy Banks to Paychecks

Fitzhenry & Whiteside | October 1, 2011 | 224 pages

The need for financial savvy is ever increasing. With university tuition and housing costs rising, parents want to ensure that their children learn the basics of earning, saving, and managing money. This is an indispensible life skill, yet it is not taught in most schools. Parents are left to pass on this skill to their children- even though they usually lack tools at hand to teach it. And, sadly, most parents do not have the underlying knowledge of finance and budgeting to be able to help their kids. "Piggy Banks to Paychecks: Helping Kids Understand the Value of a Dollar" is a practical approach for parents to help their children learn the critical money skills that aren't taught in schools, like earning and saving money, budgeting, understanding taxes, and running a business. Each chapter tackles a different skill and includes interviews with parents and kids from across the country, and worksheets and checklists to help both parent and child on their financial journey. Mohr also includes fun games and activities to reinforce and hone kids' (and parents') money smarts! Angie Mohr's extensive experience as a professional accountant and management consultant guides the book's content and scope, but it is her face-to-face experience with thousands of individual clients and readers in both Canada and the United States that gives Piggy Banks to Paychecks its uniquely readable style and tone. Parents will learn how to talk to their kids about: The law of supply and demand Earning money Saving money Wise spending choices Banking and credit Basic business principles Taxes and how they relate to budgeting Insurance basics Allowances Budgeting
