Show Notes

In this interview on the School For Good Living Podcast, Ron joins Brilliant Miller to discuss his book “The Opposite of Spoiled: Raising Kids Who Are Grounded, Generous, and Smart About Money,” which if you are raising kids, you probably hope they’ll turn out that way, not spoiled. This interview includes a lot about money and parenting, including allowance, whether we should pay it, what its relationship to chores should be, how to approach it, and even what should be off-limits for kids, if anything, when it comes to how they spend their own money. Ron also shares his thoughts on how much the tooth fairy should pay for a tooth, which he answers in a very interesting way, and how to answer kids’ questions about money. Throughout Ron’s book, and in this interview, he shares many ways to approach talking about and using money to use it as a key for good living.
