In his NY Times blog article, “ Why Your Family Should Talk About Money More Often ,” Carl Richards discusses the importance of having open conversations about money as a family. It may be an uncomfortable topic for some, but how else will your children learn about the value of money, financial discipline, and the link between hard work and money? Have you talked to your kids about money lately? Do you and your spouse openly converse about finances? According to Richards, these conversations “can go a long way towards avoiding problems later.” We would love to hear your opinions on the topic. If you have any stories about how your family handles money talks, please share.
