As a Teacher, Coach and Financial Planner I have been around parents of all different backgrounds and walks of life. There is one universal topic that they all dread talking to their children about. In fact, many just flat out refuse to talk about it at all. Can you believe this?
Here is a sample of the responses I usually get when I suggest that they NEED to have this discussion with their son or daughter. Do I have to? Another one I often hear is "That is a really uncomfortable subject to talk about". However, my all time favorite is "my parents never spoke to me about it and I turned out ok".
I am currently writing a book on this topic that I hope to have out in the fall of 2015. But until then, maybe I can give you some food for thought as to why giving your children at least a basic education on how to handle and deal with money is important.

Why is This Such a Big Deal Anyway?
OK... but really its not like it will kill them
You have seen the push in this country to encourage everyone to go to college. If those students had even a rudimentary education in personal finance and economics, they might decide to stay home instead.
And sometimes the best way to make money....is not to spend it in the first place.
Keep tuned to this website for my book coming out in early Fall 2015 :)
