The Opposite of Spoiled: Raising Kids Who Are Grounded, Generous, and Smart About Money by Ron Lieber

Lieber shares creative, funny and real stories he’s collected from families across the country that encourage smart spending, saving, donating, goal-setting and even getting media savvy. Using these stories, he introduces us to critical themes — involving children in family financial decision making, using money to teach values and ensuring kids have a financial stake in more meaningful choices like college and car ownership. Lieber encourages us to empower our kids by openly discussing money, using money from a young age and showing them how we use money as a tool ourselves. Lieber helps us understand that we can all raise kids who become grounded, generous and smart about money.
