Over half (59 percent) of parents say that they feel uncomfortable talking to their kids about finances. Perhaps they would feel differently if they had access to media that could help them expand their own knowledge and explain critical principles more clearly.

Garrett Sutton — an attorney, best-selling author, and one of Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Advisors — has been developing a series of content titled Cool Kids, Money Smarts that will make it easier for kids and parents to improve their financial literacy.

In a recent interview, Sutton discussed his commitment to enhancing financial education among children, as well as how SunnStream is helping him to achieve his goals and share his knowledge.

Sutton says that he is on a mission to “assist parents and kids with the understanding of financial matters in a way that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.”

As someone who has spent over 20 years working alongside Robert Kiyosaki, the author of the famed book, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, Sutton is in a unique position to provide practical financial education. Throughout his decades of experience, he has witnessed significant problems with the way kids are financially educated (or, more accurately, the way they aren’t educated).

When asked about the problems he’s seen, Sutton clarified that a lack of financial education is a worldwide phenomenon affecting parents and kids in the United States, South America, Australia, and Europe. He added that many parents want their children to be more financially literate but don’t know where to turn.

“Parents realize that their kids are not being financially educated. It’s an important topic. It’s a topic that’s with parents and kids every single day for the rest of their lives. So this is really important. And people are frustrated that the schools don’t teach it. And so they know that they have to get this information on their own, but they’re not sure where to get it.”

That’s where Cool Kids, Money Smarts comes in.

Sutton explained that he wants to “provide a platform for parents to help get their kids educated on money.” With SunnStream’s help, he and his team have licensed a variety of kid-friendly content, including financial literacy for kids and entrepreneurship for kids. Sutton has worked hard to ensure the content is entertaining as well as information. In his words, parents will not be “hitting your kids over the head with…just financial education.”

For those who are not yet ready to subscribe, Sutton offers a free eBook written by his son, Ted. It is titled Five Tricks to Teach Your Kids about Money, which can be found at 

When asked about the advice he would offer parents who want to guide their kids and educate them about finances but aren’t sure where to start, Sutton shared more details about the benefits of his newly released SunnStream content.

“That’s the beauty of SunnStream is we present the information as information for financial literacy for kids, but adults are going to benefit from this too. We encourage the parents to read the book, Five Tricks to Teach Your Kids about Money, and understand how they can get their kid. It’s thinking about financial education. We encourage the parents to watch with their kids the history of money in gold and silver and these other shows.”

So far, Cool Kids, Money Smarts features lessons from a variety of well-known instructors. For example, Mike Maloney, who has worked with Rich Dad (Kiyosaki’s company) as a metals advisor, teaches a series of lessons on gold and silver for kids. Andy Tanner, a Rich Dad advisor on paper assets, is also featured in a show explaining how he taught his kids about money.

Sutton explained that he and his team will be utilizing several other professionals associated with the Rich Dad company, noting that “We’re going to be getting the best to assist us in creating great content for parents and kids.”

After spending 20 years traveling with Robert Kiyosaki, Sutton is excited to begin connecting with parents and kids and share his financial education knowledge. As he put it, “This ties exactly into what I’ve been doing for the last 20 years.”

Sutton provides content at a variety of price points, making his financial knowledge available to an extensive audience. Again, there is the free eBook, Five Tricks to Teach Your Kids about Money, but users can also access the SunnStream content for $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year. There are no ads, and all content is human-created.

In addition to visiting the SunnStream website,, and signing up for the free newsletter, those who are interested in learning more about the platform and keeping up with the latest developments can also follow along on Facebook and Instagram (a TikTok account is being launched soon, too!).
