"CHOKING ON THE SILVER SPOON Keeping Your Kids Healthy Wealthy and Wise in a Land of Plenty”

Whilst it focuses on American families, the book’s message is very real for Nigerians. As a wealth manager, i gifted it to some of my clients. It is available on Amazon.com

(Review: Vicki Gervickas)
“What happens when the “American Dream” becomes reality, and the reality isn’t so great after all? When the kids & grandkids, showered with advantages and privileges, turn into entitled underachievers, who want more, can’t make it in school and can’t hold a job.”
 
“Though this problem is often identified with the rich, parents with little are also in danger of passing on the disease of “affluenza” to their children as money and “things” substitute for time and attention.”

 “The book covers a range of “financial parenting” pitfalls:
 • 6-year-old whose birthday party costs more than a family sedan 
 • Teenager crashes his new Mercedes
 • 35-year-old who can’t be bothered to show up for work, runs family business into the ground.

“It will provide some uncomfortable moments for readers who recognise the tendency. But for anyone who wants to ensure that the dream does not become a nightmare, it offers an antidote to the creeping epidemic coined “affluenza.”
