A former member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans, Beth wrote her latest book, Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not), for the many moms out there who are eager to give their kids the financial skills they need but aren’t sure how. Drawing from a 25-year career as a personal finance journalist and all the latest research, Make Your Kid a Money Genius gives you practical ways to raise kids with the financial (and life) skills they’ll need when they have money (and credit card bills!) of their own.
One thing she’s learned: Making our kids financially savvy is especially important for our daughters. Recent surveys found that parents give the bulk of money advice to their sons. At MommyCon NYC, Beth will offer special advice about leveling the playing field for girls and boys.
Whether you have a newborn, a middle schooler, or even a college grad, you’ll go home with actionable steps to help your children lead more financially comfortable lives and avoid the pitfalls so many suffer when it comes to money.
Stop by MommyCon NYC (room 702) on Saturday, March 25, at 1pm EST to hear Beth discuss an issue that should be at the top of every parent’s (long) to-do list: teaching your kids how to be smart with money.
