Proverbs 22:6 says…
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
What a fitting verse to summarize the premise of Dave Ramsey and (his daughter) Rachel Cruze’s book that’s coming out on April 22, 2014. The official title is “Smart Money Smart Kids: Raising the Next Generation to Win with Money,” but Proverbs 22:6 does a pretty good job, too.
I’ve been looking forward to this book coming out after hearing the buzz about it, but I’m even more excited that we are able to be apart of the official launch team for Smart Money Smart Kids. Not only did we get a sneak peak at the book, but we’re able to share it with y’all as well (I imagine that’s how they would say it in Nashville).
As I started diving into the book, I was immediately hooked by a story of a woman who approached Dave after a talk he gave early on in his personal finance career; she said,
“Dave, that was great information. Why don’t parents teach their children about money? Why don’t we teach basic money skills like this in schools? Our kids need to know this information.”
