We can’t expect our kids to learn what isn’t taught. It’s the parents’ responsibility to impart financial know-how, so talk about money.
Be vulnerable. Ask questions. Dare to believe that you are not the only one who has ever faced this struggle. Say something you are afraid you might regret with the faith that the right person will hear it and reach out to you in solidarity.
I now have more than an education; I have the power to put that education to good use for my family. Because as a coach I have learned to identify not only what I want or why I want it, but how to make it happen.
Our call as parents isn’t to treat all our kids the same, but to nourish them according to their needs.
Our stance should never be to teach someone else a lesson, but to invite them into a conversation that will increase understanding.
