Publisher's Summary

The Barefoot Investor for Families: the only kids' money guide you'll ever need. 

This audiobook is perfect for parents, grandparents and anyone who listened to The Barefoot Investor and asked: 'Why the hell wasn't I taught this years ago?'. Written and narrated by Scott Pape, you’ll hear him share the 10 things every kid needs to know about money before they flee the nest. And it’s simple, you can teach them over dinner, once a week. 

The audiobook is structured around one family 'money meal' each week. If you follow the roadmap, with dedicated lessons for each age group, your children will know how to do things like: 

  • Learn the life-changing value of hard work 
  • Set up a fee-free bank account (or jam jars!) 
  • Go on a Treasure Hunt around the house and sell some of their old 'stuff' second-hand 
  • Save you hundreds on household bills 
  • Learn to cook at least two low-cost, yummy, nutritious meals from scratch. 

Scott's mission is to make sure your kids are financially strong so they never, ever get sucked into the traps that middle-aged bankers have developed to rob them of their money and their confidence. 

Scott Pape is the author of one of the best-selling Australian books ever, The Barefoot Investor: The Only Money Guide You'll Ever Need. His simple, funny and practical advice has changed people’s lives for the better. 

Start talking with your kids about money now - it’s never too late.

Not a one star, one hit wonder

Someone on Amazon left a one star review for this book because the text was too small on their device. Giving one star for a book because Amazon didn't format it well is like giving one star to a movie because your drink didn't fit into the cup holder armrest. Scott's saying, about doing your job if you want to get paid is sadly lost on these people because heaven forbid they actually have to do something different to get the information they so desperately need! Thank goodness for Audiobooks.


The kids and I are listening to this easygoing audiobook in the car for the second time. My husband is in it for the first time. highly recommend this. If you have his last book, never fear, there is lots of new info here and great ways to make this family friendly for all those different families out there.


Scott, you are quite frankly, a champ. Thank you so much for all your advice.

This is a good book about Money

My Mum and Dad read this book and wanted to start using the barefoot money way. I wanted to read the book for myself so my Dad got the audio version for me. I enjoyed learning about money from Scott. I am 7.

Good advice for parents..

Thanks for the awesome new ideas.. However I disagree on your advice for employing kids at such a young age.. May be I am wrong and you have a point.. Best wishes for your next book.. Cheers

A fantastic book for families and your kids future

Loved it! We will be implementing the Barefoot 10 with our kids and we know "they've got this" when they leave home because we've given them the tools thanks to Scott!

Good financial advice for my family

I don’t have a financial plan and have spent my life spending every single cent I’ve earned. This is a real eye opener for me and my kids.

Should hand out copies of this in maternity wards

Thats how foundational it is. I'll be sharing this one with my mothers group for sure! I think its funny that I never really considered that financial fitness is something we can be taught from a young age, probably because it's not something I was ever taught or exposed to at all past having pocket money for washing my dad's car but it makes a lot of sense (and explains the credit card debt i was in at 22!Gah ..)Scott also talks about a barefoot 10 tips, which stretch beyond money into building self esteem / confidence in your children to put them in good stead for the future. I'm so glad he wrote these more focused tips as a follow on from his previous book, its fried gold. This is a must listen for parents!

Fantastic

I really appreciate Scott's style and was pleased to hear him doing the narration himself. I absolutely LOVE that he's done this book, because I am a person that wants to raise my son to be financially astute, but didn't really have a clue how to go about it. This book lays out a detailed, but simple plan that cuts through all the "if I give them money for housework, they'll think they deserve to be paid for everything they do, but if I don't give them money, how will they learn to use it" that has been running through my head constantly. I'm looking forward to getting my husband on board with this plan, so we can begin to implement it with our four year old son. While Scott has aimed his work at the Australian market, I feel it is workable here in New Zealand (and I forgive you for your dig at people who travel to here!) I have already recommended it to half a dozen people, and will continue to do so.
