This book is the perfect plan to save the future of our children. The principles taught on these pages will provide the foundation our children need, not only to live successfully financially, but also to thrive in life. The younger we start them with this plan the better off they’ll be in college and beyond. This book can be the starting point for how you leave your legacy to future generations in your family.

I liked the book, but I am a fan of FPU. There were some practical tips that I plan on using with my own children.

I have a daughter who is two and my biggest fear is not educating her on how to manage money well. This book provides a great framework for that. It's full of real life applications, scenarios, and personal stories of Dave Ramsey's experience in raising money smart kids.  The dialogue between Rachael and Dave also provides great context from both the perspective of the child and the adult.  And let's be honest. Even as adults we need to hear this basic stuff for our own benefit from time to time anyway. I gave the book 4 stars because as a Dave Ramsey fan, I've heard most of these stories before. Great content, but certainly repetitive if you've listed to his teaching or Rachael speak at other events in the past few years.  BUT! If you are new to the DR scene and have kids, it's a must read for sure.

Smart Money Smart Kids is a book about how to take the money-smart principles taught by Dave in his other books, financial classes, and radio show and teaching them to your children. Dave tells his perspective as the parent and relives how he instilled money-smart principles in his three kids. His daughter Rachel talks about her perspective of being raised with money-smart principles and how she remembers the lessons she learned growing up. (And they provide student budgeting forms in the back for your teens.)  I liked this book because it wasn't "preachy." Dave wasn't the parent telling other parents how to whip their children into shape. Instead he and Rachel go back and forth giving the reader not only the parent's perspective but the child's. I also like that though I am not yet a parent, I got to see what it will be like to raise money-smart kids. And I got excellent ideas on how to be a good influence to the kids I already know.  There was nothing I can say I didn't like about this book. It was an engaging read, which is important for someone who reads mostly fiction and cringes at most non-fiction titles. The stories Dave and Rachel weave throughout the book captured my attention and kept me turning the page wanting more.  Anyone who values raising children to be smart with their money so that they will grow into adults who aren't living in the basement, borrowing from Mom & Dad constantly, or can't hold a job down needs to read this book. Dave and Rachel set out simple guidelines on how to raise not only money-smart kids but happy, productive, successful adults.  If you have kids, plan on having kids, or you are involved as a role model in children's lives, pick up a copy of this book.  Happy reading! P.S. - This book would make an excellent baby shower gift.
