Everything Your Child Should Know About Money & Finance
By Darrel Francis Jr., MBA
“A perfect tool for introducing your kids to the basics of money and finance, providing the valuable knowledge needed to make effective and informed money making decisions as they transition into adulthood”
When Darrel first shared his book’s concepts with me, I immediately thought “how awesome is this?” He felt that students needed a guide; something geared toward them that explains concepts and skills they should have down by the time they complete high school and enter the adult world. He, as well as I, knew what it was like to become adults and to all of a sudden have to make financial decisions………having no idea of a credit score and how it affected our ability to obtain loans to buy items like cars or what an overdraft charge was and how that could even affect you. He felt that it was our duty as adults to explain these concepts to young people so they won’t fall victim to financial traps. Thus, his guide to money and finances was created!
Most of our youth are thrusted into these same decisions with limited knowledge; some lacking the ability to even open a savings account. So, after he disclosed some of the concepts his book touched upon, I immediately felt that this book would lend nicely to my course. It was written in language students could understand, making it all the more fitting as a facilitating tool in not just my classroom, but any classroom of middle-school to high school pupils. To be able to send political and financial savvy youth into the world feeling confident about their ability to manage their finances should be the ultimate goal. This book lends itself perfectly to that goal. Moreover, it can also be a powerful tool in the home. Parents can use this book to discuss money matters with their children. The entire family can benefit from the information this book presents. The concepts can be put into practice thus creating a financially literate family!
