A recently-published book, written by Clifton Corbin — a former business consultant with over two decades of experience, who subsequently switched careers to become a full-time, stay-at-home dad — has just been released, dedicated to helping parents navigate financial education, aiming to help the financial literacy of future generations.
“Your Kids, Their Money: A Parent’s Guide to Raising Financially Literate Children”, published by Patterin Publishing, a purveyor of financial literacy books and educational materials, provides parents with all the tools, skills, and resources they need to be their child’s best financial literacy teacher.
“Research has shown that adults, who lack adequate financial literacy, spend more on fees, pay higher interest rates, and accumulate more significant debt,” said author, Clifton Corbin, a graduate from Niagara University with a master’s degree in business administration, who has spent years studying finance, and is a passionate advocate for advancing the financial literacy of children and young adults.
“On the opposite side of that coin, people who are financially literate have higher savings rates, pay less in fees, and invest their money more wisely.”
Along with tips and tricks for parents, the book helps parents increase their financial literacy IQ, while also giving them fun and engaging tools to teach their children.
First-time author Corbin covers all aspects of personal finance, from using debt wisely, to creating wealth, to why we need to secure our wealth with insurance and proper tax planning.
“Talking about money with kids can be intimidating, however it is something essential for your children’s future,” advised Corbin. “By writing this book, I’m hoping to help parents with the confidence, tools and resources to teach their children how to be financially literate, build wealth and financial security at all stages of their lives.”
Corbin has also co-launched Tapvigo, a touchless content-delivery solution that brings digital content to the physical world. When not reading or listening to podcasts about finance or economics, he can be found fixing-up his 100+-year-old Toronto home, playing basketball with his kids, chairing a PTA meeting or just DJ-ing in his basement.
The book is now available and can be found online, at A Different Booklist, and Amazon in paperback. E-book, and audiobook versions can be found at Audible, Kobo, Google Books and Apple Books. Visit cliftoncorbin.com/ for more details.
