Hi Everyone and welcome to the Family section of Frank Money Talk!
I know that it can be difficult to discuss money at home. Whether it’s lingering beliefs from how we were raised, or fear that our children will judge us for our financial mistakes, talking about money quickly becomes off-limits.
Time passes and then our children are adults, being forced to make complex financial decisions without basic knowledge about how money works. You want the best for your children, but how do you explain one of the most important aspects of life?
