Have You Talked to Your Kids About Money?

23 Feb
While many parents do, they don’t spend enough time talking about it, teaching it and modeling good behavior.
For example, I can’t tell you how many parents I’ve had a college talk with who refuse to share with their child how much this education is going to cost.  What a wasted learning opportunity.
Or the clients who refuse to share their own financial details with their adult children. If you can’t trust them, why are you leaving them any money?
My feeling is families should talk about money, young and old.  remove the veil.  Remove the awkwardness. It is just money, right?
If ever you’d feel it useful to have me along for such a talk, please let me know.  I’d be happy to facilitate a discussion for your family.  It would be good for all involved.
