As parents, we play a significantly influential role in our children’s lives. Everything they say, do, and how they behave, is influenced by the experiences they have in their home environment, and in our actions as parents.
The same applies to their relationship with money. How we engage with, react to, behave with, and talk about money as parents will form the foundation for how our children will relate to money. This will be their norm and their benchmark when they start making money decisions. (See link to download the 2018 e-book: https://goo.gl/ZtGQC3 )
