This class allows your student to look into the future and make real life choices for his/herself. With other personal finance books/curriculum you simply learn about finance. This class will let your student live it. And isn't life a better teacher than a book?
No! The financial concepts are written and explained so that most students and adults can understand them. The goal of this class is not to make a Financial Consultant out of your student. Rather, the goal is to open his/her eyes to the costly choices ahead of him/her and help him/her make the connection between his/her choices and the financial consequences.
The philosophy of this class is to make the experience as true to life as possible. Therefore, I don't recommend giving your student a grade (unless using this curriculum as a high school elective). Rather, I encourage you to evaluate your student based on performance and give them a raise that ties to that performance. I provide guidance in the Teacher's Workbook to get your started.
Each session varies based on the content covered. Most videos run about 30 minutes and contain the teaching material as well as the game play.
I am so confident that you will see financial maturity in your child that I am offering a money back guarantee. If your student does not show signs of financial enlightenment after 8 lessons (60 days), simply return the books to me and I will issue you a full refund of your course fee.
Yes, debt is bad. I allow students to make the mistake of using student loan debt and car debt in their "future life" so that they can experience the pain firsthand. The hope is that they will begin to understand long lasting effect these loans will have. In my house, my teenage son did not believe me until he saw it for himself. Now he is ready to make better financial choices with his real money.
