Publisher's Summary

Discover the 10 things your kids need to know about money before they leave home. 

Forget chore charts, guesswork and parenting guilt: you won't find any of that in this road map for raising hard-working, generous and financially confident kids of all ages. In the same easy-to-listen style that made The Barefoot Investor a phenomenal success, Barefoot Investor for Families, first published in 2018, is aimed at parents who want to teach their kids the value of a buck. 

Scott Pape has taken the 10 money milestones kids need to nail and laid them out for you in a simple, step-by-step plan. Over the course of 10 hilarious, poignant and sometimes downright crazy 'Barefoot Money Meals', you'll get the skinny on:

  • The simple pocket money strategy that takes just three minutes a week
  • The kitchen challenge that 'breaks the brat' and shows kids how good they've got it
  • Helping your teen land their first job (even with zero experience)
  • The $453,329 gift to your child that won't cost you a cent
  • How to boost your kids into the property market with the 'Barefoot Ladder' strategy

Along the way, you'll meet proud families from all walks of life who have used this exact plan to give their kids life-changing money skills. If you're a parent, grandparent, uncle, aunty, or have children in your life, whether they're two or 22, it's never too early or too late to start.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Just to let you know, I work for Audible, but the views expressed in this review are 100% my own.

It's only for older kids

This is only for older kids, not for anyone under the age of 15. Theres probably only one chapyer that is applicable which was really good.

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
