Ron Lieber, the “Your Money” columnist for The New York Times and author of the instant New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, The Opposite of Spoiled: Raising Kids Who are Grounded, Generous, and Smart About Money will present a talk, “How, When and Why to Talk to Kids About Money” (whether they are 3 years old or teenagers!) on October 20 at 7:00 pm.
Lieber, a personal finance expert and father, will explain how talking openly with children about money in meaningful family conversations can help parents raise children who are modest, patient, grounded, and financially wise young adults. His talk is applicable to children of all ages and families of all incomes. He will offer practical guidance for the best ways to handle a range of financial issues from the tooth fairy to allowances, charity, savings and checking accounts, and more. Parents will leave with insight into how to model financial behaviors and how to embrace the topic of money with their children, resulting in raising kids who are less materialistic and more generous.
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Q & A and book signing will follow the talk.
“All of us worry about how to give our kids a proper dose of perspective and gratitude. Ron Lieber’s explanation about how money conversations imprinte these good values (and so much more) is just the thing parents need to read right now.” Madeline Levine, Author of The Price of Privilege
