The sayings, “If I knew then, what I know now…” or “Hindsight is 20/20” can apply to many aspects of life. However, they may be particularly relevant when talking about money and investing. The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens: 8 Steps to Having More Money Than Your Parents Ever Dreamed Of gives teens a chance to minimize the need for such quips.

Although there are many topics that children discuss with parents as they grow, money and investing are among the more neglected. This book can be a valuable resource for parents who want to teach their teens about the importance of handling money wisely. One strategic focal point addresses the importance of avoiding credit card debt, something that currently seems to plague many twenty-somethings.

Brothers, David Gardner and Tom Gardner, with Selena Maranjian wrote The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens. Selena Maranjian is a syndicated newspaper columnist who has worked with the Gardner brothers on several publications. David and Tom Gardner, aside from managing their popular finance website, www.motleyfool.com, co-host the weekly radio show The Motley Fool.

With the help of worksheets and a glossary, this financial handbook can help teens obtain a better grasp on the world of investing. After all, don’t you wish that “if you knew then, what you know now…?”
