Your Kids, Their Money​

A Parent's Guide to Financially Literate Children

Your Kids, Their Money gives you the tools to teach your children about the one area many parents never talk about – money.

 Drawing on his master’s in business administration (MBA), finance experience, and practices with his own children, Clifton Corbin provides a guide for the modern parent. In this book you will learn how to educate your children on the basics of money management such as allowances and first jobs, borrowing, credit, and investing, in ways that make sense to parents and appeal to kids.

 Clifton’s innovative approach starts by identifying teachable moments during everyday activities. You will see how to: 

  • Involve your children in the family’s finances, 
  • Explain where money comes from, 
  • Teach why it’s essential to invest, manage debt and donate, 
  • Gain tools to explain why sometimes you just can’t afford some things, and
  • So much more.

 Throughout the book, you and your kids can participate in activities and games to engage further with financial literacy and build greater confidence.  

 Your Kids, Their Money is the clear and simple guide you need to help teach financial literacy to your children. Applicable for kids of all ages, this guide is an investment you will want to make in building a solid foundation for your children’s future.

 Don’t make the same mistakes your (my) parents did!

This book is everything I wished my parents knew and taught me. Much like the author, I too had zero financial education, and the moment I got my first credit card in university, it was all downhill from there. It took me well into my 30s to dig myself out of debt, and if I had better financial literacy from the outset, I’d have been way better off. I wanted to do better by my son, and this book has been a perfect place to start.

From undoing the old fashioned “allowance for chores” mentality to teaching your kids how to build wealth and financial security, this book holds your hand through complex concepts and breaks them down for you, so you can break them down for your kids. Each chapter ends with key takeaways and resources, as well as provides activities you can do with your kids to not only explain these concepts further, but actually practice them!

What I love most, though, is that this book shows you how to teach your kids much more than “how money works”…it covers teaching them to understand the value of things in their lives, helps them understand the difference between needs and wants, and shows you how to practice borrowing with your kids.

There are no hard and fast rules for what you should do at what age, so you can jump into whatever chapter is appropriate for your kids based on their mathematical ability, the kinds of questions they’re asking about money, and their age appropriate needs. You can read the chapters applicable to you, in any order, since they’re each self-contained nuggets of wisdom broken down by concept. Whether you’ve got littles just starting to get their allowances, older kids walking neighbourhood dogs for extra cash, a teen starting their first job or about to go to college, you will find something applicable and useful to you and your kids. I’m 41 and learned something new! Need I say more?

I just read the book and was inspired to immediately utilize many of the authors ideas and suggestions with my children. My kids have already helped me pay some bills online, and we have begun discussions regarding an allowance based on the books’ recommendations.

As a high school teacher I was especially impressed with the chapters on debt and credit. I have already incorporated some of the information and lessons into some classroom discussions. I especially enjoyed the Key Takeaways and Activities sections that followed each chapter. They are very useful.

The book has valuable lessons for children of all ages, not to mention adults. Drawing from the authors mistakes, we can hopefully avoid some of the “self inflicted grief” that plagued Clifton Corbin in his younger years. I truly enjoyed reading about his journey towards financial literacy. I will be recommending this book to my friends with young kids.

Helping my kids with their money!

I purchased this book knowing that I had to start planning my kids financial pathway to success. It did not disappoint. Corbin’s down-to-earth tone and approach makes this book accessible to parents who don’t have all the tools to talk about money. With lots of good practical tips and relatable anecdotes, Your Kids Their Money is a solid guide for parents wanting to start the journey. I have already got them going on allowances and making a savings plan. Great read.
