In this Current Events Friday’s Post (CE-Friday’s), I’ll be letting you know about a brand new way to help parents teach their kids about money – and have fun doing it – with Family Money School.
CE-Friday’s – “What you need to know today in less than 500 words”
Alright, Team, one thing to mention up front – if you like what you see in the product below and decide to make a purchase through one of the links in this post, I’ll get a small kickback for referring you to the course at no extra cost to you.
Why do I mention that?
Well, a couple of reasons…
- I’m next to positive it’s the law,
- I value your trust and try to be as transparent as possible with all the content on this blog, and
- I’ve never directly pitched a product on the site before (and it’s been over 3 years)
That’s not to say that I’ve never been approached about directly pitching a product – I have. I’ve just never acted on anything outside of doing a book review. So take that information as you will as I introduce you to:
Family Money School
Here’s the link to head over and check out the course
Directly from the course creator:
As a teacher and school administrator with almost 15 years of experience, I have a passion for teaching kids. And since I’ve had kids, I’ve really been working hard to help pass on my money values to our kids. In speaking with our friends and those on social media about the lack of financial education in curriculum today and the difficulty for parents to teach their kids about money, I saw a need to help equip parents to make this happen. That’s why I developed Family Money School.
The Family Money School course is designed to help busy, overwhelmed and confused parents teach their kids about money.
Matt (the creator) opened up the course to me prior to launch and I gotta say – I really love what he has
In total, there are 17 videos with 8 modules. The topics include:
1) What to Teach
2) When to Teach it
3) How to Work
3) How to Save
4) How to Spend
5) How to Give
6) Money Isn’t Everything
The cost of the course is $47 (during launch week and returns to the normal $67 after April 12, 2019) and includes:
- Access to all the videos
- 10+ PDF resources including
- Tips To Help Your Kid Save
- Money Conversation Starters For Kids
- Expense Tracker
- Money Values Inventory
- The Money Genius’ First Budget
- Ideas For Serving As A Family
- Printable Slides For Note Taking
There are also several customizable Chore Charts for parents to use with their own kids.
In addition, Family Money School will have a Facebook community that members can participate in as well as a monthly Live Q&A session.
In addition to the content, I personally loved a lot about the program
- Matt, as a school administrator and parent, knows what he’s talking about and brings with him a wealth of data to back up his methods
- Videos were to the point, entertaining, and kept my attention
- The course was easy to navigate and track my progress
- Printables and slides were easy to print off so that I could follow along and take notes
- I was not bombarded with email and notifications but simply given the opportunity to complete the course on my time
I’m excited about the opportunity to use Matt’s program to help educate our girls about using, handling, and learning more about money.

I’ll let Matt close with a snippet from his original email:
…I’m super excited to work with parents to help them raise a generation of money rockstars…
If Family Money School sounds like something that could benefit you, your kids, or some family members – I recommend giving it a shot.
