Book Review: The MoneySmart family system By Steve and Annette Economides
I have loved the Economides' books since they first came out. I have their two previous books, also family financed based. And I admit that i was fascinated by a couple who's name was "Economides" who wrote about money! Too much for my little brain i guess :) Anyway, I loved this book as much as I loved their previous books. I think The MoneySmart family system is a GREAT addition to anyone's family library.
The author's write in an engaging way about why its important to raise money smart kids- they talk about the implications of children who are crippled by this lack of skill. But they take it a step further and not only talk about WHY your kids need this skill, but give practical examples of how to practically implement this skill in your home! I found many great ideas that I will use in my family, as we definitely have "issues" in this area. I love how the authors come from a background of a large family without a lot of money. This I can relate to, and it not only makes them more credible, but means that they are providing the valuable information that us family people NEED. I don't want to know about investments right now or building or maximizing our portfolio! i just want to raise children who love the Lord and who use their money effectively for HIS purpose. Their system is one that shows me how to do that! Additionally, It also teaches responsibility all around. And its doable being quite broke, as we are constantly!
I give the MoneySmart family system a 5 star review!
