Ron Lieber

The Opposite
of Spoiled

Talking to Our
Children About
Money and Values

Kids are curious. It’s their job to figure out the world. But when they start asking how much money we make, why we won’t buy them things if we’re not poor and why their friend’s apartment is so much bigger or smaller, it’s hard to know what to say in the moment. In this presentation, Ron will talk about how to keep kids modest in a materialistic world, use allowance to teach patience and thrift and end the epidemic of silence around money in families and our communities.

Ron Lieber has been the “Your Money” columnist for The New York Times since 2008. Before that, he was a personal finance columnist for The Wall Street Journal and a writer at Fast Company and Fortune.

His first book, co-authored with his friend Colin Hall, encouraged teenagers to take a year off before or during college and was a New York Times bestseller in 1996. His columns about student loans won business journalism’s highest honor, the Loeb Award, in 2011. Ron lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife (and colleague) Jodi Kantor and their 9 year-old daughter. He speaks regularly about parenting, kids, money and values to parents, educators and students of all ages.
