    "Essential Parenting Advice"
    If you could sum up Smart Money Smart Kids in three words, what would they be?

    Financial advice for parents.


    What other book might you compare Smart Money Smart Kids to and why?

    Total Money Makeover, Financial Peace


    What does Rachel Cruze and Dave Ramsey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The opportunity to hear Dave and Rachel deliver advice in their own cadence. The ability to hear the narrators passion on the content.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Dave's final chapter "I was that Dad..." - It's as if he's speaking directly to you, empowering you to take control of your family tree, and ultimately change your legacy.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good overall. Simple concepts to implement with your children. Having already begun discussing the ideas with my kids, I can say the results are immediate - and surprising.

    "Excellent ideas for all ages of children"

    Great, age appropriate ideas for your children of all ages. Love the stories from his actual children. I began the first day and it has gone very well for my three kids from 6 to 10 years old.

    Story
    "Great book for parents and grand parents"
    Would you listen to Smart Money Smart Kids again? Why?

    Yes. There is timeless information in here and sometimes I need some reminding.
    It really makes you think about your style of parenting and if the money messages you are sending to your kids are the right ones.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    These are odd questions.


    Any additional comments?

    Lots a great information in this book about how to teach your kids about money and how to help them not become self entitled 'consumers'.

    Story
    "A Key Parents How to Book"
    If you could sum up Smart Money Smart Kids in three words, what would they be?

    Foundational, Structure, Principles


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Smart Money Smart Kids?

    When Rachel describes her college friend getting her first credit card and only planning on using it and paying off the balance every month only to have something come up unexpected and fall into the trap of just putting it on the CC and thus the cycle of debt begins. Hit close to home.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This not a book with scenes as say there would be in a fiction novel. So this question may not be appropriate for this book.

    But a story that stands out is Rachel shutting down her Facebook account to avoid the feeling of envy when she would see her friend's posts about vacations and recent purchases. I think that's a real problem today and it was enlightening to have someone speak about it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The extreme reaction I had was that I saw many mistake I made with money and credit cards as I began to earn a living. It made me want to make sure to teach my son not to do the same. Valuable stuff!


    Any additional comments?

    I think this a great book and one every parent should listen to. If I could make a suggestion to Dave Ramsey and his daughter Rachel Cruze, it would be to spend some time talking/writing about how to begin to build wealth in more detail for young people. Introduce and explain Mutual Funds, and other savings options. Give direction on where to find more information and how to begin with little money and how to start small. Take the daunting nature of beginning to invest and make it digestible.

    Story
    "Very Conservative which is what we all need."

    "Where does money come from?" (Dad)
    "Work!" (Kids)

    "You knew you were in deep trouble when you hear Dad say;
    "You do not talk to my wife that way."
    I found this book refreshing. Sometimes on his radio show and in his books Dave can go overboard and get carried away with calling people "STUPID!" "IDOT!" However this book is told by a more tactful Rachel who says it like it is, yet with more care. Dave will occasionally add a comment here and there to keep things "Ramsey". There isn't much of a story line but rather a well thought out series of points that need be addressed when it comes to teaching children about money. Topics such as
    Child Spenders
    Child Savers
    Charity from your Children
    Saving for College
    Paying for a Wedding
    the First Car
    Going to the Fair
    and even Money to Married Children. With each point an entertaining story from Rachel's past is told. I have already started using some of these principles with my 4 children (my oldest is 9). Like much like Dave's other books, the concepts are simple and common sense, yet I'd not thought of that before. Think of this book like a Financial "Love and Logic". Use what you like and leave the rest on the shelf.
    Would I recommend this book? VERY YES! I have already told a few of my close friends.
