I Wish They Taught Money in High School is a two-in-a-one book. I Wish They Taught Money In High School: So I Can Start My Own Business Right Away by Sharon Queanda and I Wish They Taught Money In High School: So I’m Not Dependent On My Paycheck by Clarissa Seriña-De La Paz.
I’m really happy when I received this book for me to read and make a review to share it to you my lovely readers. Honestly, I am not good when it comes handling money especially if it is my money. I’m an impulsive buyer. I just buy anything that I want without thinking if I need it or not. Whenever I like a thing, I will buy it immediately without thinking twice. But everything has changed when I got pregnant and gave birth to my precious little one. Every time I saw something I like, I make sure to think not only twice but trice and sometimes I ended up not buying it at all.
When I finished reading this book, I have realized a lot of things. I also realized that the title of the book is really true. I do wish that they teach the students about money in high school. Not just a money but on how to save your money for your future.
Here are some of the lesson I learned from the book:
- Plan and stick to the budget.
- Educate my daughter about money management the earliest age possible; (This book have plenty of ideas on how to teach your children the value of money.)
- If you have money, you can start investing or start a small business that suits you.
- Establish a good credit score; (Credit cards aren’t evil.)
