Hear what others have to say about the book:
“Like most parents in our Asian society, talking about money to my children does not seem necessary or appropriate. I believe many even regard it as a taboo subject in the family. How wrong was my thinking! After reading this book, it opened my mind to the need to start creating meaningful conversations about money with my children. It is better late than never!”
– Regina Lim, Business Development Manager, Mother of two
“Raising Financially Savvy Kids is a helpful guide for parents as it provides practical suggestions on what they can do to teach their children to acquire the fundamentals of financial literacy. It highlights the importance of teaching children to be responsible family members, and at the same time, offers strategies that would help children become more aware of their money habits.
One strategy that I have learnt from this book, which works with my four-year-old, is the ‘questioning’ technique. I ask my daughter if there is anywhere we can borrow a book she wants without spending any money. As a result of employing this technique, she now takes the initiative to tell me that she can go to the library to borrow a book instead of buying it from a bookshop!”
– Jane Lee, Mother of two
