Teaching our children how to handle money is often “caught and not taught,” yet, how many of us learned our own personal money skills in the school of “hard knocks?”
As parents, we want to set a good example of money management, but what if our ideas of money management are just not clicking with our child (or spouse!). Have you ever considered that you may have different money personalities? In the grand scheme of things, money is simply a tool, a means to an end, and that end is quality relationships with our spouse, children and the world around us. Delving into the heart of money relationships—the deep seated assumptions and beliefs that each of us bring to the money decisions we make—the authors expand on the five types of money personalities: saver, spender, risk taker, security seeker, and flyer, to help us identify our unique money personalities. Then the book moves on to assess the money personalities of our children through a designated assessment link and code. With this foundational understanding, the authors provide practical advice and encouragement for teaching our children basic money skills. The following sections are divided into 3 age groupings: 5-12 years, 13-17 years and 18 and beyond, with insights and ideas specific to the five money personalities. Also included are parental “button pushers” to be aware of in order to prevent us from over reacting and derailing these important conversations. A great tool to understand how different children approach and deal with money that would be a great go-along for parents whose children are working through the Dave Ramsey Foundations in Personal Finance course or the Money Matters for Kids/Teens series. 257 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

If you listen to Dave Ramsey's radio show for very long, you'll notice that some adults have never learned to manage their money. If they had used the Moonjar Moneybox while growing up, they might be better off today. The Moonjar Moneybox is a simple system of keeping track of the money you receive and having a plan before you receive it as to what percent of your $ is saved, shared, or spent. Instead of a piggy bank, the child stores his money in one of 3 boxes (blue for save, red for share, green for spend) banded together to form a hexagon. That way, it goes in the appropriate box right away. A Passbook that looks like a miniature checkbook register allows the child to track his receipts, with a column for each category.
This item is an easy and inexpensive way to learn about money management, to encourage saving, and to practice tithing. Maybe we should buy one for each of our congressmen and President Obama? ~ Bob

I consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable when it comes to college-prep homeschooling, but I just discovered that I only knew the proverbial "tip of the iceberg." Fortunately, I can now point you to the real expert – Jennifer Cook-DeRosa. This book is an amazing compendium of information. She covers all the topics you would expect – college credit at home, high school planning, curriculum-building, test-taking, transcripts, college admissions and costs. She covers these topics completely and thoroughly; citing a wealth of resources, in a manner that I appreciate – bullet points. But what I savored most is the overall philosophy of her approach. Homeschooling moms wear many hats during their career, but one that has been overlooked (at least until now) is that of high school guidance counselor. With this book in hand, you will have the tools you need to guide your child not only through high school but into college and onto a life path that avoids many expensive pitfalls along the way. Her general approach to educational costs might be dubbed a Dave Ramsey-esque cost/value assessment. In other words, she gives you lots of options for avoiding the ubiquitous college debt that many families just accept and many homeschooling families avoid by shunning college educations all together. Her tips for talking to children about the relative value of jobs and their attainment cost helps to put "pursuing your dream" into economical perspective and will help you realistically prepare your children for establishing and supporting a family. Don't wait until your child is in high school to read this book (although better then than never) – middle school is a good time to start the process of educating yourself (once again) and filling your mind with the possibilities. 170 pgs. pb ~ Janice
