Teaching kids about money is easier than you may think!
It is never too early or too late to start teaching your children about money and investing.
As quick as a wink, your babies turn into kids who turn into teens who then, in a perfect world, move out on their own and have to take care of themselves.
When you learn the rules to The Money Game early in life, so you have plenty of time to apply them to your life, you are far more likely to be able to create financial security for yourself and your family.
You don't need to be a financial genius to prepare your children to handle money wisely.
Money...The Instruction Manual is designed for parents to learn right along with their children if they aren't financially savvy yet!
When you invest in Money...The Instruction Manual, you're not just buying a financial education book for children...you're joining a huge community of parents all over the world who want to ensure their kids learn about money.
If you purchased the printed version of the book from Amazon, we want you also to have an electronic copy so you can print out additional workbook pages if you're teaching more than one child or a group of children.
Money Jars: Your Magical Money Management System gives you detailed instructions on how to set up your own brilliant financial system.
We cover 30 of the most used, time-tested financial principles, habits, ideas, philosophies, etc. in the book. You can print out the business card sized principles, cut and use with your kids and teens to help them remember what it takes to grow up financially savvy.
Most kids and teens (and adults for that matter) have a very difficult time thinking about being an older person, however, when they do, they realize how important every decision and choice is.
One of our favorite financial principles is the following...
"Your money habits always add up in the end."
We've included a great Money Habits worksheet you can print out for each child to use while they learn.
One of the simplest ways to instill any lesson, moral, principle, philosophy, etc. is to teach it using a story.
The story of the goose that laid the golden eggs is one such story. We include it for your reading pleasure.

Realizing that far too many parents were simply ill-equipped to teach their own children about money, she created a book based on the highly effective and fun Camp Millionaire for parents to use to prepare their children to be financially responsible in life.
I thought teaching my daughter how to be financially responsible was going to be a huge task but your book broke it down into bite-sized chucked so it was so easy help her learn. (p.s. I learned a lot too but please don't let her know that!). Thanks for creating such a great teaching tool.

My son has been fascinated by the stock market for years but I knew if he didn't understand money basics, it was going to be hard for him to really understand money. Money...The Instruction Manual was exactly what I was looking for! It gave him a foundation and now he understands investing on a whole new level.
Father of 13 year old
I have twins and they couldn't be any more different when it comes to money. One saves while the other one spends! After having both of them learn with your book, they now understand and help each other make much better choices with their money. Thank you so much.
