Talking about money choices, big and small
As you talk to your kids about money, when you talk to them is less important than how you talk to them. When you take into consideration where your children are in their financial development, you can talk to them about important events and build skills they’ll use later in life.
Some topics may be sensitive for your family. Keep in mind that children absorb much more than the words you say—they’re aware of your moods and attitudes too. Start a conversation when you sense it can be productive and comfortable.
