Smart Money Smart Kids – Parent Class at Waterbrook

Smart Kids Smart Money 2016 Slide WEB

At Waterbrook Bible Fellowship we believe we can best impact children by helping disciple parents. This means getting parents the tools and experiences they need to help their children grow in all areas. One way we do that is with the class “Smart Money, Smart Kids”. This is a special class for parents. Parents attend the six week class and take the principles learned home each week to then share with their children.

2.19_fly_fb-960x250This class is designed for parents, caregivers, or anyone who has direct influence in the lives of children. The six practical, video based lessons will equip parents to teach kids how to avoid making money mistakes, while learning the key principles of money management and character building.

Parents should register for the class in advance to assure that enough parent kits are available the first day of class, February 21, 2016. The kit includes the New York Times #1 best seller Smart Money Smart Kids, a workbook, online access to all video content, including lessons and resources, and a “More is caught than taught” vinyl decal. There is a cost for these materials. The registration fee covers all materials. The fee can be paid at the lobby kiosk, WBF office during weekday office hours, or on the first day of class. Complete the registration form below to reserve your spot in the class.

One of the great things about the Smart Money Smart Kids class is that no matter how old your kids are, you will learn how to apply these principles to their specific age groups.

Our classes begin Sunday, February 21, 2016, at 9:30 AM in the (location TBD). This class is video-based, but facilitated by Sarah and Santhosh Abraham.

The Six Lessons:

Lesson 1 – Work and Responsibility
Rachel and Dave focus on teaching kids the work-money connection, the importance of personal responsibility, and how our work reflects our relationship with God.

Lesson 2 – Spending and Wisdom
Rachel and Dave discuss why parents should understand their child’s particular God-give bent and how that can lead to wise spending decisions now and in the future.

Lesson 3 – Saving and Patience
Rachel and Dave talk about how parents can encourage delayed gratification and how kids can learn to set specific goals for their saving.

Lesson 4 – Giving and Generosity
Rachel and Dave encourage parents to raise generous children by emphasizing God’s ownership—along with our stewardship—and challenging their kids to step out of their comfort zones.

Lesson 5 – Debt and Honesty
Rachel and Dave share the Bible’s perspective on debt and urge parents to raise kids who can identify and reject the cultural myths that fuel debt’s popularity today.

Lesson 6 – Contentment and Gratitude
Rachel and Dave challenge parents to actively protect their kids from the pervasive “bigger is better” messages in our culture and to encourage an attitude of contentment rooted in humility and gratitude.
