Mom, Dad, Tell Me About Money

A Primer


Due to the need for our youth to understand the nature, workings and use of money to create wealth, the book entitled “Mom, Dad, Tell Me About Money” is now available.  This primer is for parents and teachers to use as a guide to explain the basics regarding banking, business, investing and the future value of money.


In the 21st century, saving is not enough.  A child and young adult needs to understand how a business works, what a bank or credit union does for the community, the functions of a board of directors and a simple breakdown of the stock market.  More importantly, it simplifies what a dollar will be worth 10, 20 or 30 years in their future.


The book has three sections: for ages 12 to 14, 15 to 17 and college age young adults who need information for budgeting and personal financial management.  This book answers questions and helps to begin an honest discussion between you and your child about money.


Parents will be able to explain money deeper than saving for a rainy day.  Each chapter is introduced by a translation of Aesop’s Fables by George Fyler Townsend.  This is to help the child think about the subjects being covered and provide a little entertainment.


Order this book for your child, niece, nephew or grandchild, today.  Their future begins now. 


People who have read the book have said:


I found that this book fills a void in education not only between parents and their children, but also in most schools.  The book brings you from a very fundamental stage to finance 101.  It's must read for all parents who wish financial health for their children once they venture out on their own.”  --M. Duarte


“Simple, straight forward, enlightening.  A must read!”  --D. Mencarini
