Do you miss the days when our children had empowering shows on television that both entertained and educated them? Have you ever seen any show on television designed specifically for black children, that teaches key financial lessons while also allowing them to have fun? There aren't very many in existence, if any, so we chose to develop something ourselves.
The Land of BMOT is an interactive children's curriculum developed by leading financial scholar Dr Boyce Watkins, whose goal is to educate millions of our children on the importance of wealth-building, entrepreneurship, investing and cooperative economics. Dr Watkins, along with a team of experts, has put this content together as a path toward intelligent financial decision-making by black children.
This kind of content is child friendly and can be enjoyed by the entire family.
The content is not simply educational, but hilarious and thought-provoking. Each episode contains a series of lessons on key financial concepts that you can later discuss with your children. Additionally, you have access to a powerfully entertaining animated series featuring friendly and loving puppets like Ryan and Rascal, who can teach your children about money in a friendly and fun environment.
As an added bonus, the program comes with FREE access to "15 things every black child needs to know about money," a $59.99 value and the content is being updated regularly to ensure that your child's learning continues for as long as he/she is in the program. Also, Dr Watkins speaks to the children after some of the videos, providing a series of explanations for key concepts that the children have seen presented throughout each episode.
Subscribers automatically get access to new episodes as they are created, and after watching all episodes, you'll see your children transform right before your very eyes!
I love to learn. I love to teach.. I never presume that I know everything, since the key to knowledge is understanding how little you actually know. But my goal is to give information, insights and perspectives that allow you to broaden your thinking and to realize all that is possible.
