From the Back Cover:

How to afford kids—and teach them about money

We all want to raise smart children. But somewhere between the reading, writing, and arithmetic, one of life's most important lessons is too often overlooked: personal finances. As adults, we interact with money every day, whether by saving, investing, spending, or giving it, but we often forget that kids also face these same decisions—from their own unique perspective—as they mature. How do we teach today what kids really need to know tomorrow to thrive as financially savvy adults? In Piggybanking, veteran Wall Street Journal personal-finance writer Jeff D. Opdyke provides a clear and effective plan to help parents raise children to be comfortable and confident managing the daily finances of life.

But even before kids arrive, parents face a rash of financial decisions. Accordingly, Piggybanking also deals with the essential problems every struggling young family must face, including how to prepare your budget for a child's arrival, how to choose between single- and dual-income lifestyles, and how to plan for funding a college education.

With Opdyke's valuable advice, and with his 15 Rules of Kids & Money in hand, parents will be well equipped to create a sound financial foundation for their family and a successful financial life for their kids.

About the Author:

Jeff D. Opdyke has written about personal finance, family finance, and the investment markets for Tgiehe Wall Street Journal since 1993. He lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with his wife, Amy, and their two children.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. When couples are planning their financial lives together, few questions are as significant as how to afford a family. The average middle-income family will spend somewhere between $185k and $270k raising a child through the first seventeen years of life, according to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. And now, in this difficult financial climate, tension levels are running even higher over how to cover these costs. To help couples meet this challenge, veteran Wall Street Journal personal finance writer Jeff Opdyke has laid out everything they need to do. From preparing financially for a baby s arrival to the financial lessons kids need to learn so that they have a solid grasp on money by they time they leave home, the chapters are split into natural divisions that track money s major categories: earning, saving, spending, investing, and giving. Finally, there s a section on the all-important basics of what parents should know to save for and ultimately afford college costs. Opdyke, who for six years was the Love Money columnist for the Journal, provides a smart, accessible blueprint for parents that will help reduce the stress of building a family and enhance parents skills for raising money-savvy kids. With Opdyke s advice in hand, parents will be well-equipped to create a sound financial life for their family. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780061358197
