One thing that holds a lot of parents back when it comes to teaching kids about money is not knowing when or where to start. They want to figure out a plan, and then figure out how to talk to kids about money, and then wait until the kid is ready to handle money, and wait, and wait, and wait…
What are you waiting for?
In truth, there’s no reason to wait. You’ve got this! When you’re starting out in talking to your kids about money, it’s really easy stuff, honest! Just start, and figure it out. Worried you’ll make a mistake? Trust me, any mistakes you make will be trivial compared to the damage you’re going to do if you keep waiting and waiting until everything is 100% clear.
Stop waiting – and just do it!
