Last week I shared the exciting news that I had been selected to be on Dave Ramsey’s and Rachel Cruze’s book launch team for Smart Money Smart Kids! I have been having such a great time reading this book and preparing to teach our little one about smart money skills!
This book was written to help “raise money-smart kids in a debt-filled world.” It has some wonderful quotes that really get you thinking. Not only about how we teach our kids, but also how our own actions effect that teaching technique as well! And if you have been around here long you know that I love me some good quotes! They are just so inspirational and great nuggets to take with you. That is why I started Words of Wisdom Weekend and that is why I am sharing more quotes with you today!
The book starts out by letting us know it is okay if your children are spenders or savers. We do not want to try to change them, but to teach them to spend and save smartly. I love this approach of letting the kids be who they are!
Although this quote is true for any act it is specifically talking about the act of spending. We must let our children see us make smart purchases. They learn from us!
Again, this may be true for a lot of topics, but it is referring to spending. If your kids spend all their money we must let them live with those consequences. If we continue to give them more they will never learn the effects of spending and saving.
Saving helps children to begin to see what those choices can lead to. Saving teaching them about goal setting and discipline.
This quote was in the saving chapter, but I feel this is a wonderful quote in general. How true is this!?
Not only am I sharing these quotes with you today, but at the bottom of the post you will find a link up where you can find other inspirational quotes and snippets from the book! There are a group of bloggers that make up the launch team and today we came together to show you just how awesome this book is! Click some links below to take a look around!
