May Mailbag: Kids and Money, Aging Parents, & More

Why You've Got to Listen to This Episode...

Still have questions about creating your family’s unique money values? We’ve got you covered in this special Q&A style episode.

For this episode, we asked the mamas in our free Mamas Talk Money Community on Facebook to send us their questions about family finances and family money values. If one person in our community has a question, there are no doubt others wondering the same thing.

So if you’re still a little overwhelmed by the topics of teaching your kids about money, your aging parents and their finances, or what your specific family money values are, today’s episode will help clear things up. I’m going to be sharing my answers to questions we received about helping your teens budget, how to prepare financially for the death of a loved one, whether or not spending money on unnecessary things for your kids is frivolous or not, plus so much more.
