Product Description:

We have probably all received an allowance from our parents at some point in our childhoods. It seemed exciting receiving money each week for just being kids no matter how large or small the amount, didn't it? Have you ever stopped and thought why we got paid an allowance for not doing anything in particular? The author of Earn It, Learn It, debunks the cultural myth of paying kids allowances and demonstrates that parents need to do more to prepare their kids for earning an income as adults. In a very informative and creative way, Alisa Weinstein shows you how to teach your kids to appreciate the connection between work and money. No one enjoys job they don't want to perform, so why not get paid for a job they thoroughly enjoy? The book devotes individual sections to describing careers, and short interviews by people in those fields. The sections suggest that you research the chosen subject areas together, such as at a library or online. These sections give parents practical advice in how to get children involved in the respective careers that interest their young minds. For example, if your child is intrigued by diplomacy, he can introduce foreign citizens to American holidays and customs; learn five words of a foreign language; and look at how your family interacts with other people when in public. The principles in this book will help kids learn that doing chores around the house is part of being a family unit, and that one must work to earn moneysomething that can be rewarding and exciting. At the same time, children will soon realize that doing certain jobs around the house can be similar to performing tasks in careers that fascinate them. 376 pgs, pb. John
