The Opposite of Spoiled

The Opposite of Spoiled
Raising Kids Who Are Grounded, Generous, and Smart About Money
Ron Lieber
Discussing money with children often carries a negative connotation to parents. It is thought of as inappropriate or uncomfortable. But the result is children growing up spoiled with no concept of how money even works. They are selfish because everything has been handed to them and they don't realize the sacrifices made to give them their comforts. They do not value their wealth and do not realize the benefits of generosity. The author has taken a direct approach to explain the downfalls of this line of thought and explains how to explain money to children.

This is one of the most helpful and in-depth book of parenting advice that I've read in a long time. The book is pretty large so it took me a while to get through it, but it was well worth my time. The author is practical and offers tons of stories and helpful advice. It isn't just a book with a great concept. It's a book that parents can actually use to help explain the concepts in a manner that kids will understand.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
