As a Parent, you want your children to grow up to be productive, motivated, financially responsible adults. You want to "bratproof" your kids against becoming self-centered materialists, spoiled and arrogant, with a sense of entitlement and an attitude of superiority.

This book will help you raise thriving kids who will grow to become emotionally mature adults.

Overview

As a Parent, you want your children to grow up to be productive, motivated, financially responsible adults. You want to "bratproof" your kids against becoming self-centered materialists, spoiled and arrogant, with a sense of entitlement and an attitude of superiority.

This book will help you raise thriving kids who will grow to become emotionally mature adults. You will learn how to protect your children from the potentially negative influences of affluence and America's consumer culture. By instilling seven positive character traits-high self-esteem, joy and optimism, serenity, hard work and thrift, loving kindness, forgiveness, and integrity-you help give your children a purpose in life and a sense of direction. Rather than a "wealth ethic," your kids will develop a "work ethic," centered on a life of ambition.

This book offers specific, practical strategies you can incorporate into everyday parenting to help you achieve your child rearing goals. You will also learn how to raise financially fit youngsters and thus protect your wealth from being destroyed by your children's financial unpreparedness. The book's straightforward analysis of wealth transfer basics, discussion of the use of trusts to transmit wealth, and explanation of how to create a legacy through charitable giving prepares you to discuss these topics with your advisors and your inheritors.
