How to ensure your children achieve real financial independence.
As a parent, maintaining a financially stable environment for your children as they grow is really only one part of your job as the head of your financial household. The other part of the job involves teaching your children the right lessons so they’re set up for financial success once they get out on their own.
For young kids, this means starting the money talk early and taking steps to help them learn important lessons like budgeting. However, as your children grow and approach the point where they’re ready to leave the roost to take flight on their own, you need to advance those lessons so they’re really ready to stand on their own two financial feet. But when do you start and what do you teach them? Perhaps even more importantly, how do help them get out on their own as financially independent adults?
