Reader Gabrielle wins my review copy of “Cash, Credit, and Your Finances: The Teen Years,” for her funny comment about needing the book not only for her spoiled children but her husband as well. She wrote:
My teenager, you mean my hubby. I need this for my teenage like husband! HAHA!! No, but we have two pre-teens whom my mother-in-law has spoiled to no end & ruined any attempt I have put in to teach them about money, saving, & spending when needed instead of on any little thing they can afford. 🙁
Gabrielle, I love your honesty about your kids being spoiled. It is my hope that this book helps them learn about money and the importance of saving. Although the book is aimed at teens, I’m sure your husband will also learn a couple of things. When reading the book, I was reminded I had to set money aside from my freelancing paychecks to pay for federal and state taxes when the time comes around. I’m no longer a teen but the learning never stops.
If you missed my review of the book, author Jill Russo Foster says that teaching teens about money is the key to avoiding debt. Her easy-to-read book includes information from creating a budget to avoiding identity theft. This book is the first in a series of three books on personal finances by Foster.
Gabrielle, email me to claim your prize and include an address where I can ship the book to.
If you didn’t win my review copy and would like to get the book for your teen or you’d like to brush up on the basics, Amazon has it for $15.25.
