You may have to move back in with your parents at some point—but hey, it’s okay.”

Ask your kids if they know the difference between an RRSP and a TFSA - if they don't know the answer, they'd probably benefit from reading this book. An interview with the author can be found here [...]
I heartily disagree with the suggestion to not get credit cards during university, and the seeming theme that parents should pay for a large part of their childrens university education. Taking advantage of your parents may be acceptable for the upper income brackets but not for the average family. How not to move back in with yoru parents - make them pay for your education so you can graduate debt free!!! Genious... pure genious. :(
Do not buy the book. Don't spend more than you have, get a job during university and minimize your student debts - and do not drink your face off every weekend.
