As parents, we want our kids to have a healthy relationship with money. As they get older, learning smart teenage money management tips is even more important. After all, they are almost out of the house and on their own!

To help us all have successful conversations with our teens about money, Ed shares some practical tips that have helped him as a father. I learned a lot from this chat even though I'm years away from talking to my teens about money. Now I feel prepared!

What are we covering?

Ed and I review the following:

  • Why Ed is passionate about money mentorship for women
  • How to talk to teens about saving and spending
  • Why your example is more important than anything you say

If you have teens or will in the near future, check out this episode. Your preparation and care toward this important topic just may give you the tips you need to help your teens have a bright future with money.
