A guide for parents that offers the ‘financial facts of life’ for kids 3 to 23


As parents, we’re game to tackle almost any topic with our kids. Sex? No problem. Drugs and drinking? Check. But money? That’s another story.

We lie. (“Sorry, honey, I don’t have any money on me.”)
We worry. (“College tuition costs WHAT?!?!”) 
We procrastinate. (“I’ll open a 529 account next year, for sure.”)
And we bury our heads in the sand. (“Birthday gifts? Swim lessons? I’ll put them on my Visa!”)

But our kids aren’t fooled. Even preschoolers can understand basic money concepts like spending and saving, and a study from Cambridge University confirmed that kids’ money habits are formed by age seven. In other words, it’s time to have that talk.

What people are already saying:

“A much-needed, tell-it-to-me-straight book, written with wit and humor. I wish I’d had it when my kids were little—but better late than never!”

Amy Chua, author of New York Times bestseller Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and Professor of Law at Yale Law School

“As schools continue to recognize the need for financial education, Kobliner delivers a master class for the most important teachers of all—parents. No question: Make Your Kid a Money Genius is required reading for families from every background.”

Arne Duncan, former U.S. Secretary of Education

“Can a book on money be fun for the whole family? This one is! Even better, it is full of wisdom, and a genuine public service. Beth Kobliner has produced a miracle. Your kids will profit from her amazing and brilliant book—and you will too.”

Cass Sunstein, Director of the Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy at Harvard University and coauthor of New York Times Bestseller Nudge
