While parenting is not a core focus area in financial advisory services, we are uniquely situated to provide valuable support to our clients who are teaching their children to become financially responsible.
Financial literacy is fundamental to financial independence and prudence. However, financial topics and skills are often omitted from a traditional school curriculum, leaving the teaching responsibility to parents. In addition to leading by example, our clients may wish to engage their children in structured conversations regarding financial responsibility. To help guide these discussions, we have created this checklist to address many of the planning issues that young people face when first starting out financially. It covers basic financial topics, including:
Cash flow management
Credit and debt management
