Teaching Kids to Master Money
As parents, we want our kids to become responsible, happy, and giving adults. Part of that entails being smarter with their finances than we've been.
We want them to understand the value of money and how it can help, but we don't want it to be their focus. It can be tough to pass on those lessons when there's noise all around.
Buy now, pay later.
Credit card debt is normal.
Get as much as you can afford.
Yeah, it's tough, but not impossible.
Joining me today's show is Sunny Lee. She is the owner and CEO of Good Life Advisors and author of Is Your Child A Money Master or a Money Monster?
In today's epsiode:
- she discusses how really young children start learning crucial lessons
- how to encourage and reward kids towards success
- how to develop the habit of giving with your kids
Besides her professional experience, Sunny is also a mother and just like most of us, she's doing her best to guide her children to become financially responsible.
Hope you enjoy!
