The last couple of years

Derek is the one that Dan and I have been “working on ” the most.  He is at an age now that he can understand oncepts of money, saving, working for yourself, and becoming independent.  We started emphasizing all of our beliefs intentionally about 3 years ago, when he was around 10 years ago.  Now kids do soak up everything they hear and se from their parents, so Mallory has a bit of an advantage over Derek since she has been in the house with us her entire life as Entrepreneurs.  She knows nothing else.  Derek, on the other hand has grown with us and watched the transformation from employees to employers.  We speak to him practically every day about doing what you love, and being self sufficient. 

Derek has been in public school his entire school life, with the exception of seventh grade.  The light came on when Dan read Rich Kid, Smart Kid, by Robert Kiyosaki, and had a totally eye opening experience.  He ranted and raved(not that it ook much) for us to agree to put Derek is private school.  I did not read that particular book, but I’m here to tell you…that is the only book I have seen anyone read and take SERIOUS immediate action. So if you are having a hard time deciding public school or provate school for your children, maybe you too, should pick up that book at any bok store and check it out.  Just from the little bit of explaining that Dan did for me was mind blowing.  The way public schools are so systemized and conforming.  They jsut don’t keep up with technology or the times.  And they teach you the old fashioned “get a good education so you can get a good job”.  That theory is out the window in our house.  We dont want anyone in ourhouse to get a good JOB.  That would be borderline self-sacrificing.  We want our kids to be millionaires!  And you can become a millionaire with a “good paying job”.   Well, maybe you can..but I’ve never seen one in my lifetime.

The schools (whether public or private) do encourage and sometimes require the kids to read each and every night these days as homeowrk assignments.  What a great opportunity to have your kids filling their heads with information that will be useful to them as adults.  Feed their subconsceince minds with data that is enriching and everlasting.  Reading is so wonderful for everyone. Especially young non-judgmental minds.  Their programming is not set on one way of thinking.  They are open and willing to listen to and receive just about anything (unless it’s “no, you can’t have 3 bags of candy).  So we, too, encourage Derek to read educational and informational books.

Here is a list of the Books that Derek has read so far:

ESCAPING THE RAT RACE , Kiyosaki

RICH DAD POOR DAD FOR TEENS, Kiyosaki

HOW TO GET RICH, Donald Trump

We;re gonna keep him reading..The older he gets the more advanced his reading will become.  Every time he picks up a book to read for his manadatory 30 minutes a night, he’s programming himself for success!  Ahhh…..the joy of parenting!
