About the Book

Children are not born with any particular knowledge or skills, therefore everything they need to know about how to survive in the real world they have to either learn at school or from you, their parents. Sadly, children don’t learn vital financial lessons in school; therefore it’s up to you to teach them not just how to scrape by in life, but how to thrive!

The Family Bank is a full home financial system, which will not only teach your children how to use a checking account, credit cards and loans; but how to: build a resume, prepare for a job interview, succeed at work on a daily basis, budget, and how to avoid getting into debt over their heads. Even what to do to get out of financial trouble if they do fall down that hole. The Family Bank will also teach your kids how credit works in our society and how to maximize their credit scores, in order to take advantage of all the benefits that come with “good credit”.

The true beauty of The Family Bank though, is not the volumes of information it will help you to teach your kids; it’s the elegantly simple way it does it. The Family Bank is a simple, yet thorough and complete outline of everything you need to know in order to create an actual “Family Bank” in your home; where your children will be your bank members. To develop a “Family Bank” on your own would take you years, but who has the time? With The Family Bank and a few minutes of your time each week, your children will enter the real world armed with the knowledge they need in order to be financially successful, stable adults. Let’s get started…

About the Author

Sergio Dinaro graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology, with a minor in Biological Chemistry. Like so many of his fellow Americans, Sergio enlisted in the U.S. Army (as a Counterintelligence Agent) after September 11th, 2001, where he served his country dutifully in both Afghanistan and Iraq. After an honorable discharge from the Army, Sergio again found himself in the same boat as many Americans; an unemployed, financially unstable, college educated veteran, who was blazing through his life’s savings.

Sergio took advantage of this “respite” from the work force to reflect on his life and his financial situation. He came to the realization that he was proud to have been able to serve his country during a time a great need; however, warm, fuzzy feelings were not paying the bills or putting food on the table. He was not at a place in his life where he could afford to be unemployed for any length of time. In short, Sergio found himself financially unstable.

Sergio set out to determine why he, raised in a typical American family, whose only desire as a child was to achieve the American dream, was struggling to make ends meet. Is it possible to grow up with very little, finance college, serve your country, enter the work force during a recession AND be able to pay your bills, buy a house and land the job you’ve always wanted? The answer he discovered was, “Yes!” Sergio looked at his 6 year old daughter and realized that he had unwittingly made too many financial mistakes early in his life, and that if he was going to teach his daughter how to be financially stable as she grows up, then he had to begin her education immediately… and The Family Bank was born.
