Do you teach your children to clean their rooms?
How about to do their homework, to brush their teeth, or to match their clothes?
How about to give money, save money, and to spend it properly?
If you said no to that last one, it might be because you see your child’s allowance as simply an economic transfer instead of as a chance to develop their character.
Our guest for the next couple of programs is the money guru himself, radio host and bestselling author, Dave Ramsey. He’ll help parents train their kids to work hard, to make money, and to manage it well. Those are basic life skills every child needs if they’re to grow into a successful adult because in the real world, if you don’t work, you don’t get paid. Dave will share practical tips for every age and stage of childhood.
We’re not raising children, we’re raising adults. That requires kids to develop self-control – in many areas. If they learn it in their finances, they’ll earn, save, spend, and give money in a way that blesses the Lord and benefits them.
I’d like to extend an invitation for you to become a special partner with us through our monthly “Friends of Focus on the Family” program. When you do, I’ll send you a free copy of Dave’s book Financial Peace Junior as a way of saying thank you for touching others with the love of Christ.
