The Importance of Parents Teaching the Financial Truth to Children

Bill-Cain-photoA critical issue we face in America is the training for our children to fully develop to become responsible, dependable and happy. Happiness is a byproduct of how we operate and who we are. I certainly will share this book with my children so they can help their children because I believe it will help the whole person in addition to helping him become financially secure. I know that many people will not make the effort it will take to teach these truths to their children, but those who do will be richly rewarded.”

“This is a very rare treasure. I didn’t even know that there was a book like this. This book can not only be a national bestseller but also an international bestseller. And I’ve attended many different seminars and workshops over the last 40 years but none of them was as inspiring as Sunny’s.”

Moms, dads, grandparents and other caregivers often wrestle with the best ways to teach the children in their lives about stewardship and financial responsibility. Sunny Lee is here to help! Is Your Child a Money Master or a Money Monster? is a great tool to help adults translate the often complicated world of personal finance into a language that kids can understand and connect with. The author is a mother and financial adviser, so she has the perfect background (personal and professional) to help parents teach their children important life skills, like money management!”

>Marissa DeCuir, President/JSK Communications,Oct 2016<

“This book is SO important! Money management is a skill you will use all your life, and it’s never too early to learn how to do it WELL. This book is a great resource for parents to open up that dialogue with their children and teach them to become money masters!!”

>Amazon Customer,Oct 2016<

“This is a wonderfully educational book in an area that often gets overlooked by parents. Teaching children to earn money and save is such a valuable lesson, and Sunny’s experience as both a financial advisor and a mother is very clear in her method for teaching.”

>Amazon Customer, Sep 2016<


“Your child’s future starts the day they are born.  Help them see the importance of living a life full of value, education and ambition. Do not put Sunny’s book down!”

>Erica L. Mccain, LUTCF/Author of Ladies With Loot, Sep 2016<

“The teachings and methods in this book is very practical and age appropriate. It is a very good read that puts a smile on my face as well as helping me to think about finance for my young children. We teach children many things and they learn many things from us. Why not teach them to have a right mindset about money at an early age so they can start off right. This book provides great advice on the right mindset about money for children to have and continue to have to be successful financially and as a person. Thank you for sharing these concepts, methods, examples, and ideas about money to parents and kids.”

“Smart! This topic is too often ignored in today’s world, but the value of teaching our kids about money and how to wisely spend it isn’t to be ignored–it’s a valuable life skill they need to learn to be effective adults in the world when they grow up. Love how this book reinforces that and gives you helpful tools to guide your kids on the right path!”

“This book will not only motivate and inspire you, it will also help YOU and your children become better organized. Jason and Matthew are so lucky (and blessed) to have parents like Sunny and Thomas who take the time to nourish their minds and wallets. This book is a must for anyone who wants to see their money grow.”

“I was so engaged in Sunny’s book that I read it in two settings – I bought the book to give to my adult kids to read and hopefully apply the tips that Sunny shares with their kids, but what I got was so much more. I was encouraged by the program that Sunny has used to raise her own “money masters.” It’s more of a life program not just for kids, but for families. The practical tips on developing discipline and a goal oriented approach to daily living can benefit all of us! I was surprised at the depth of the program that Sunny lays out in her book, but she breaks it down into easy age appropriate steps. So whether your child is two or twelve, it’s never too late to create money masters versus money monsters. It will not only benefit kids, it will change the dynamics of your home life and the future of your children and your family.”

tony“Her focus is on teaching young kids the value of saving and planning for the financial future. She is low key, not pushy, nor demeaning, speaking from the heart for the success of our youth. I highly recommend her. She has written a book about starting at an early age to teach kids the value of money and developing a gradual and systematic savings strategy, without pressure or constant oversight. This is something that all parents and grandparents should be advocates of and implement. She is one of the most enthralling and mesmerizing speakers we have had in months, and we allowed her to go over the time limit. Five members bought her book and several ordered one, and she stayed over for more than a half hour to talk with several parents and grandparents. For our club that is rare that we did not “cut her off” and that our members stayed after the meeting.”

“Sunny approaches the issue of money by breaking it down in easy to teachable-mommy1understand concepts. Each of the 7 habits are written about in a way that not only will children gain knowledge and wisdom concerning money but adults will as well. I like that Sunny includes images and examples of what she uses for her boys within the chapters.”

mom-plan“I have read a lot of finance books, both for adults and kids. Hands down, Is Your Child a Money Master or a Money Monster by financial advisor Sunny Lee is my favorite! What I love about this book is that Lee isn’t just teaching parents how to teach their kids financial responsibility; she’s also teaching parents how to motivate their children.

I plan to go back through this book and set up a system for my kids. I’m really excited to try this! Even better, Lee has a website with the forms she uses online, which saves me some work.I highly recommend this to parents wanting to instill a good work ethic in their children AND a healthy respect for money. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars on the Mom’s Plans’ scale.”

“I really enjoyed this book. I finished it in one sitting, ’cause I couldn’t let it off my hands. It was funny, clever, pleasant and easy to read, yet it conveyed a great deal of empowering messages. I like to consider this book as a manual for strategies to raise children to be financially successful and to become the leaders of future generations. I admired Sunny’s consistent carrot-rewarding methods to motivate Jason and Mathew which is normally not easy to do and very rare in present society. The habitual patterns that Jason and Mathew are mastering and those who are following Sunny’s success strategies will be equipped with the incredible life time tools to create their promising futures. Sunny’s easy step by step methods will help any parents to guide their children to solidify successes in life. This book is a must to read. Our society is desperately in need to supplement this level of education at home which are not available in a curriculum of elementary school system. This book reminds me of the phrase from the ancient Hawaiian teaching, “Think not all wisdom is in your school.” This book is direct, step by step and very easy to follow. I highly recommend this book for all parents, future parents and even all ages who’re obsessed with success in life because it contains numerous powerful subconscious messages for adults,too.”

“My daughter Christina and I wanted to write to thank you for your page http://www.nomoneymonster.com/learn-money-matters-by-playing , which has helped her as she works on developing her financial literacy. Though she’s still young, I think it’s never too early to start.

As part of this, her father and I thought it would be a good idea for her to learn more about budgeting and planning, so she can make long-term decisions. She and I sat down to do some research today, and think the best we’ve found has been the “Financial Tips and Advice for Students” at http://payoffpilot.com/financial-tips-advice-students/ . Have you seen it? Christina noticed that though we liked and appreciated your page, it didn’t have it on there, so we thought we’d write to say thanks and pass it along. Thanks again.”
