Overview

Money can be a source of conflict in almost any relationship, whether with your family, friends, or your girl or boyfriend.

Whether you have it or you don't, money can stir a wide range of emotions but it's important not to confuse an emotional issue with a financial one (or vice versa).

Discussing money with your parents can be difficult. Remember to stay calm and express yourself as clearly as possible.

Making compromises is key to any relationship, especially when it comes to money.

Money can make you feel happy, sad, powerful, proud, and both in and out of control, but your money doesn't determine who you are.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This text is part of the "Junior Library of Money" series specifically focused on introducing young adults to issues related to the world of money. This particular text, focusing on money and relationships, contains 26 detailed chapters that begin with a general introduction to the question "What is Money?" and then proceed to discuss everything from money's importance to what money has to do with relationships. Topics such as talking to parents about money, money and jealousy, not defining oneself through money, money etiquette, and being in control of one's money are helpful in the direct way each talks to teens about financial interactions and implications. Yellow "Did You Know?" signs throughout the text provide additional ideas or thoughts about the specific topic under consideration in that chapter. For example, the chapter on money and emotions is paired with a sign that says, "when psychologists did a study of lottery winners, they found that they winners were happy when they first won the money, but after that their happiness wore off, and they were no longer happier than they had been before" (16). The "Further Reading" and "Find Out More on the Internet" sections provide additional useful information for readers. This book, and the series in general, provides an interesting look at issues with money that young adults should be able to read and understand easily. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.
