Book Description

Aug. 21 2012
This guide has been written for parents who value education, want to give their child a financial and academic head start in life and are willing to take an active role to make it happen. In the information age, a good education is more important than ever, but the current educational system may not be providing all the information your child needs. This book was designed to fill in the gaps: to help you give your child the same inspiring and practical financial knowledge that Robert Kiyosaki's rich dad gave him. The book will show you how to awaken your child's love of learning using the same methods that Robert's smart dad used to help Robert stay in school, even though he had bad grades and often wanted to drop out. It shows how to open doors that you never knew existed, enabling you to pass down the skills and understanding your child will use for the rest of his or her life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Summary Jan. 13 2004
Format:Paperback
Our current education system fails to adequately teach our children the financial skills necessary to survive later on in life. Robert Kiyosaki wrote Rich Kid, Smart Kid to fill those gaps. The fundamental premise of the book is that all children are born smart and rich. The goal of education is to bring out that natural genius within our children. Awakening this genius inside of us is a sure way to become happy. Therefore, being happy through realizing our innate potential is more fulfilling than being rich and unhappy. Rich Dad said, "If you are not happy while getting rich, chances are you will not be happy when you get rich. So whether you are rich or poor, make sure you are happy" (14).
The root of the current problem lies in America's transitioning from an Industrial society into an Information society. Kiyosaki explains the need for transitioning our thought, "In the Information Age, what you know becomes obsolete very quickly. What you learned is important, but not as important as how fast you can learn, change, and adapt to new information" (xi). These structural changes tangibly affect us regardless of whether or not we acknowledge them. Some of the problems facing tomorrow's youth include social security, healthcare, increased risk of obsolesce through increased specialization, and the need for lifelong education. Education must adjust with the times.
Currently, our education system teaches scholastic and professional skills. Scholastic education focuses on the ability to read, write, and do arithmetic. Professional education trains students for high-level careers later on in life. However, this Western brand of education fails our children in some crucial ways. Rich Dad said, "The child learns by doing, making mistakes, and then learning" (238).

3.0 out of 5 stars It Was OK Dec 8 2002
By Katie
Format:Paperback
As I read other reviews, I could relate to them all. Rich Kid Smart kid was extremely redundant (I could repeat to you all of the sayings he said over and over), his anecdotes I could have done without, and he advertised himself a ton. It also bugged me how many times he said he was a bestseller author. What a way to identify yourself.
However, I did think it was interesting and helpful. For some reason, I couldn't put it down when I read it. The anecdotes, although too prolific, were somewhat interesting. Before reading this book, I didn't even know you could invest in Real Estate, and he went into how and what you do a little bit. The section on self-perception and different geniuses was very interesting. I think if all kids knew that they were smart, just not in every way, there would be a lot less self-esteem problems. I think it would also help teachers be patient with kids that are labeled "troublemakers."
Although I enjoyed reading Rich Kid Smart Kid for the most part, and it did make me feel smart after I read it, I was annoyed at the posed questions that were never answered. Where do I get the money to invest? It sounded like the money he started out with just appeared, which I know didn't happen. I also wish he would have explained Asset, Liabilities, Income, and Expenses in a little more detail. Instead, he referred to his other books, which I probably won't read. The part I learned most from was when he put the situations into a real-life senario. It also bothered me how he said he wasn't writing a book on parenting, when he was dishing out an awful lot of advice.
Overall, the book was interesting and it might be the way to a good start in your child's financial life, but that doesn't help me too much. I think I would have benefitted from this book a lot more if it had been more answers than questions, but that may have been the reason it was quick reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Empower your children with Rich Kid Smart Kid Nov. 29 2003
Format:Paperback
This is not just another book in the rich dad series, this is a book that all loving parents must have to truly empower their children to greatness. Kiyosaki offers some striking facts to support the advice he learned from his Rich Dad.
For example, Kiyosaki starts off by citing an article in the Arizona Republic with the following statistic: "About 700,000 seniors will be cut from Medicare Choice HMO's according to a survey released earlier this month by the American Association of Health Plans."
Kiyosaki goes on to cite another statistic based on a study done by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, of every one hundred people at age sixty-five, one is rich, four are comfortable, five are still working, fifty-six are needing government support or family support, and the rest are dead.
Interesting is the first time I heard this statistic was back in 1974 when I was in the insurance business. The late Earl Nightengale also frequently stated this in his excellent classic "The Strangest Secret" which was released back in the 1960's. Things have not changed much in over 40 years and not likely to unless we change.
Kiyosaki goes on to say that this book is not about becoming the one rich person out of a 100 (although that is a noble goal)It is about the fifty-six who still need someone else to support them.
Kiyosaki then points out that many people erroneously say they won't need much money when they retire because their living expenses go down. Nothing could be further from the truth because of the rising costs of health care.
Kiyosaki then asks; "Did these senior citizens education prepare them for the financial challenge at the end of their lives?
