Best parenting book around
I started reading this thinking it was about teaching my children about how to be savvy with money, but there is a lot more within the pages than financial literacy for kids.
I would not be surprised if the Barefoot Investor secretly had a psychology degree. I can see now this book is going to empower families and teens to have money confidence knowing "I've got this", as well as teaching them to be kind and thoughtful citizens.
Really? Isn’t this just basic stuff? Obviously there are a lot of people loving this book because they need his advice, but for me, this is pretty simple stuff.
