Finance for Youth – Wil Stanton’s Financial Literacy Text for Teens

Title: Finance for Youth

Author: Wil Stanton

Publisher: Lulu

Date: 2010

In the days of waning privilege, the costs and impact of credit related decisions are high. What better way to prepare your pre-teen and teen alike on the trials and tribulations of the adult world of finance then in a book written just for them? Stanton, an educator and banking professional, has crafted a terrifically digestible guide for the soon to be adult in the areas of personal finance and fiduciary responsibility as well as personal development. His examples are clear and designed specifically for this audience and really engage the reader drawing them in and holding them as they go through the different finance related topics.

Never preaching, always relevant and engaging, this book is something that every middle schooler and high schooler should have to read as part of a consumer responsibility course. If more young 20 and 30 somethings had this material in their school curriculum perhaps our economy would not be upside down and in a mess! Sensibly presented, covering everything from saving to retirement, loans (unsecured, secured, signature, etc), and the priorities, pluses, and pitfalls of your savings plans Stanton’s book covers it all. Finance for Youth is a good introduction to real world 101 for parent and child to explore together.
