In the spirit of Wendy Mogel’s The Blessing of a Skinned Knee and Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman’s Nurture Shock, New York Times “Your Money” columnist Ron Lieber delivers a taboo-shattering manifesto that explains how talking openly to children about money can help parents raise modest, patient, grounded young adults who are financially wise beyond their years. For Ron Lieber, a personal finance columnist and father, good parenting means talking about money with our kids. Children are hyper-aware of money, and they have scores of questions about its nuances. But when parents shy away from the topic, they lose a tremendous opportunity—not just to model the basic financial behaviors that are increasingly important for young adults but also to imprint lessons about what the family truly values. Written in a warm, accessible voice, grounded in real-world experience and stories from families with a range of incomes, The Opposite of Spoiled is both a practical guidebook and a values-based philosophy. The foundation of the book is a detailed blueprint for the best ways to handle the basics: the tooth fairy, allowance, chores, charity, saving, birthdays, holidays, cell phones, checking accounts, clothing, cars, part-time jobs, and college tuition. It identifies a set of traits and virtues that embody the opposite of spoiled, and shares how to embrace the topic of money to help parents raise kids who are more generous and less materialistic. But The Opposite of Spoiled is also a promise to our kids that we will make them better with money than we are. It is for all of the parents who know that honest conversations about money with their curious children can help them become more patient and prudent, but who don’t know how and when to start.

Kids will always be kids. They want to play, run to the fields, watch their favorite cartoons and do fun stuff. But most of all... they are curious. They love to ask many questions, of how and why things happen. So why not take the opportunity and tell them about financial literacy? Adults are afraid that if they teach so much to a kid at a young age, they will not get their interest. But kids are developing mentally, and are having interesting thoughts. Give them lessons about a business they can start, and let them do some enterprising and investment. You could even teach them about the rich and poor mindset. Eventually, when they became teens and grown ups, they will earn their own money, and they might even dream to be an entrepreneur and start a business. Remember that teaching them while they are young can make a great impact while they are growing. Share them the steps and takeaways to reach success. Studies show that the earlier the children were introduced to money and saving, the more likely they will be good at budgeting when they grow up. With this book, you will get ideas on how you can teach your kids to save, invest and budget their own money in an entertaining way.
