Smart Money Smart Kids

If you are a parent looking for advice on raising money-smart kids, this video class, facilitated by Bill Miller, Financial Hope Ministry, is definitely a winner.
In Smart Money, Smart Kids, you'll learn how to teach your kids the key principles of money by creating teachable moments in your family's everyday routine. You'll learn how to build your kid's character and give them a solid understanding of how money works and how to make wise decisions. 

In Smart Money Smart Kids, financial expert and best-selling author Dave Ramsey and his daughter Rachel Cruze equip parents to teach their children how to win with money.  Starting with the basics, like working, spending, saving, and giving, and moving into more challenging issues, like avoiding debt for life, paying cash for college, and battling discontentment.  Dave and Rachel present a no-nonsense, common-sense approach for changing your family tree.
