5 Stars Out Of 5
Will meet the needs of most families

Raising Financially Confident Kids is an easy, quick read, which is great for busy parents. I enjoyed reading Hunt's Basic Money Values, which can easily be written out by children or parents and used as their family's financial philosophy (see page 72-74).
Hunt's list of how to help your children determine the difference between needs and wants is excellent. (pgs. 140-141).
She also provides clear and short steps on how to teach your children about saving, banking, ATMs, keeping a spending plan, making a spending record, credit cards, credit scores, and much more!
I think this is a very valuable book - more like a financial teaching guide - to use with your children. You might even find that this book will help you straighten out some of your own financial problems when you read the benefits of living a debt-free lifestyle.
We've taken our children through a popular 12-week money management seminar that was held at our church, and after our house is paid off, our goal is to remain debt free. Raising Financially Confident Kids just adds tools to our financial toolbox so we can continue to guide our children to living debt-free lives for themselves.
