Parents, I believe, are the best teachers who should guide our children towards a successful future. Unfortunately, many of us are not equipped to transfer adequate knowledge about personal finance.
That's one of my frustrations, actually -- my generation's lack of education on properly handling money. Filipinos are fortunate these days though because so many resources are available to those who are willing to learn.
As part of my personal advocacy to help improve fellow Filipinos' financial literacy, I am giving away a set of two personal finance books each to two of my readers, courtesy of CSM Publishing, a publisher of many helpful and inspiring books.
1) Raising Up Moneywise Kids by Chinkee Tan and Kayla Tan. Inside are 10 enriching money lessons parents can teach their children so they can become financially literate, financially responsible, and financially wise while they are still young.
As parents, we sometimes worry about our children's financial futures and hope they won't make the same money-mistakes we've made. Thus, this book will teach you lessons on breaking incorrect money mindsets, enable you to form good money habits, and empower you not only to teach your kids about finances, but to also be the good financial role model they need.
Raising Up Moneywise Kids is written by Chinkee Tan and his daughter Kayla. Chinkee is a sought-after and respected wealth coach who shares his personal experiences to help others.
2) Where Should You Invest by Marvin Germo, RFP, the best-selling author of the Stock Smarts Series. This book answers some of the biggest questions in personal finance and provides a firm foundation on creating, maximizing, and preserving wealth as you move toward financial freedom.
As the Deputy Governor of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, Diwa Guinigundo, wrote, "This book connects the dots of wealth creation, multiplication, and preservation ... Marvin rightly concludes that creating wealth has a purpose."
