havent got kids yet. planning them in late 2018

i personally dont have kids yet. looking forward to re-listening this to in the future. what a great way to look at money. i am not religious- or American. i am Australian so I take what Dave and Rachael say with a grain of salt. i wish my mother taught me more about money. i hope to oven a block of units in the future. defiantly want to be a millionaire!!!

Practical advice (even for my toddler!)

My husband and I did Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University when we first got married (we were 19 and 20, and living on very little. But we had no debt and we wanted to learn how to use our money well)

Now, we have a two year old daughter, and I'm glad I listened to Smart Money Smart Kids. It's given me practical ideas I can use with my daughter, even though she's so young

Financial advice for parents.

Total Money Makeover, Financial Peace

What does Rachel Cruze and Dave Ramsey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The opportunity to hear Dave and Rachel deliver advice in their own cadence. The ability to hear the narrators passion on the content.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Dave's final chapter "I was that Dad..." - It's as if he's speaking directly to you, empowering you to take control of your family tree, and ultimately change your legacy.

Any additional comments?

Very good overall. Simple concepts to implement with your children. Having already begun discussing the ideas with my kids, I can say the results are immediate - and surprising.

Excellent ideas for all ages of children

Great, age appropriate ideas for your children of all ages. Love the stories from his actual children. I began the first day and it has gone very well for my three kids from 6 to 10 years old.

Practical Advice for Raising $ Smart Kids

This book is based on the authors' years and years of experience with helping people learn how to best handle their finances. The fact that this book focuses on raising money smart kids is great seeing that the two authors are a father-daughter team. This is really great to get both perspectives and it's also great for a lot of laughs.

Dave Ramsey and his daughter, Rachel Cruze, do a great job reading their own pieces of their own book.

Apply these principles to your life and your children's life ASAP and you will not be disappointed.

Helpful & Practical, but Rachel is too dramatic

Great Stuff
Must Read
Listening is hard due to Rachel's over-the-top drama and wannabe professionalism the entire book.

Really awesome!

Would you listen to Smart Money Smart Kids again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this again- it's like a playbook for teaching kids how to handle money.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Smart Money Smart Kids?

When Rachel spent all her money and tried to borrow some from her sister.

What does Rachel Cruze and Dave Ramsey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

If you only read the book, you won't get as much of the story since you can feel their emotions in their descriptions of everything happening during the book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Smart Money, Smart Kids still works as a film

Any additional comments?

Thanks to the Ramsey family for all they do for others. God bless

Must read for all parents

Would you consider the audio edition of Smart Money Smart Kids to be better than the print version?

n/a. I only listened to the audio version so I cannot answer to this question.

What other book might you compare Smart Money Smart Kids to, and why?

Rich dad, poor dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Same principles about raising money smart kids.

Have you listened to any of Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

no

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes many but the one that come to mind is the cord given to the oldest kid when she leaves home.

Any additional comments?

Best Fiance book I ever read and recommend this to anyone... will listen to it a second time and shared the book info on social media as I feel the information in the book must be passed on.
