EP 87: Setting Your Kids Up For Financial Success

An interesting thing about being a parent is that there is variation from person to person on how children are raised. The topic of money, and the way it’s viewed, understood, and managed is no exception. For some, parenting on the topic of money may revolve around financial acuity: making sure their child understands checks and balances and the value of a dollar. For others, it may mean pushing innovation and being an entrepreneur. And for others, it may mean saving a certain amount in a child’s name as a cushion for when they leave the nest.
