Book for my teen
« on: December 02, 2015, 02:50:54 PM »
Hello,
I want to convert my teenager.  I have suggested this site with no bites.
Anyone have suggestions for books?
My teen might read one.
TIA

The site "and then we saved" has a younger tone that might appeal to your teen. A lot of advice on how to get out of debt, but also tons of other advice. Good luck!

Poorcraft and Poorcraft: Wish You Were Here are comics if your teens are into that and they're a pretty good primer on living frugally.

The Millionaire Next Door by Danko-Stanley. In a subsequent book Stanley writes that a decamillionaire asked him to judge a cash-prize book report between his grandchildren on the book. He wanted them to read and absorb that one book so much h was going to pay $500 as an enticement. (Don't recommend that amount, just th book.)

You can also get audiobook versions of that and similar and just play when he is in car w you or while making dinner.

Thank you.  I looked this up-very helpful.

Anyone else?

Maybe start your teen with a real-life example they can relate to? Does your teen earn an income? Maybe crunch some numbers about how much money your teen would have in X amount of months/years with X% savings rate and investment. Or maybe use a financial goal like saving for a car or something else they are interested in and how fast they can reach their goals through budgeting/saving. If you can present personal finance in a more current real world situation for your teen, maybe that would help them spark an interest to read on their own. good luck!
