Do you have a plan to educate your children about financial matters? - Do you think about the values that you are communicating to your children through the way you handle money? - Are you uncomfortable talking about money with your children? - Do you sometimes use money as a bribe to get your children to do what you tell them? - If you feel you've been too busy to spend time with your children, do you try to make it up to them by buying them things? - Do you frequently argue with your spouse about money in front of your children? - Do you ever talk to your children about the importance of charity and helping others less fortunate than your family? - Do you give your children a consistent allowance? - Are you worried about Generation Debt: how your child will succeed in getting through university or college? If any of these issues worry you, then this book is for you. Gold Start has been written by an expert in the field of educating children about money. It is jam-packed full of excellent tips and advice on how to make your child's life (and your own!) much easier in the future. The book is interactive too: full of questionnaires and tables to work through in order to find out the best financial plan for your family. The book also includes a chapter on 'Teens and money', written especially for older children to read themselves.
