Ms. Rose Fres – Fausto of FQ Mom wrote about my advocacy on her September 2016 blog post. She is the author of three books: Raising Pinoy Boys, The Retelling of the Richest Man in Babylon and it’s Filipino version, Ang Muling Pagsasalaysay ng Ang Pinakamayamang Tao sa Babilonya. She is also a regular contributor in The Philippine Star newspaper.
I had second thoughts about sharing this here because of the following reasons:
- I am not comfortable plastering (a picture of) my face on this blog. Or, on my personal Facebook wall.
- People might think that I am filthy rich. I am sometimes filthy but definitely, not rich.
- Worse, people might think that I am boastful. I am chatty but gets tongue-tied when in front of an unfamiliar crowd.
So, what changed my mind? I am a mom and an advocate of Financial Literacy.
I am still not comfortable staring at my face while writing this but, I do understand that putting my face here means that I am a real breathing person.
I am not rich. Perhaps I am rich – based on my kids’ standards. But, anyone can buy a book and gift it to their children, nephews or random orphans.
I am definitely proud of the financial achievements of the people that I have helped. But, I don’t keep track of who, how and when.
When is the best time to teach our kids about Financial Literacy? As early as possible!
What is the best method to teach Financial Literacy? By reading the texts, hearing the words and doing activities. All of these learning styles/ teaching methods are incorporated in the book The Retelling of the Richest Man in Babylon (and it’s Filipino version Ang Muling Pagsasalaysay ng Ang Pinakamayamang Tao sa Babilonya).
How much is the book? 150.00 Pesos ONLY.
Cheap, huh? Why don’t you also buy a copy for your children, nephews or random orphans? Please share this post to your family and friends because:
