NextGen event with Ellen Sabin, Author of "The Giving Book"
NextGen event with Ron Lieber, New York Time columnist and best-selling author
lead our session on the how, when, and why to talk to kids about money and engaging them in philanthropy. As millennials and Gen-X aged parents raise their children to be compassionate, competent and caring adults, Ron will offer concrete tools and examples to help us think about how money and philanthropy help shape our children into thriving adults.
Ron Lieber is the “Your Money” columnist for The New York Times and author of The Opposite of Spoiled. Ron explains, “The foundation of the book is a detailed blueprint for the best ways to handle the basics: the tooth fairy, allowance, chores, charity, saving, birthdays, holidays, cell phones, checking accounts, clothing, cars, part-time jobs, and college tuition. It identifies a set of traits and virtues that embody ‘the opposite of spoiled,’ and shares how to embrace the topic of money to help parents raise kids who are more generous and less materialistic.” But, says Lieber, The Opposite of Spoiled is also “a promise to our kids that we will make them better with money than we are. It is for all of the parents who know that honest conversations about money with their curious children can help them become more patient and prudent, but who don’t know how and when to start.”
