Teaching kids about money sets them up for a successful future! But money can be a hard thing to teach, it can be something that we hesitate to talk about if we don’t feel confident, and we may not know where to start.
Virginia is a financial coach who is great at teaching money mindset, abundance, and how to live without stress and scarcity. She has great advice for teaching those things to our kids to get them off to a great start in life and help them be financially secure adults!
This week I’m chatting with the lovely Virginia Elder from Happy Healthy Abundance about teaching our kids about money.
I don’t know about you, but as a young adult I wasn’t very good at money management. Part of it was that I was thrust into adulthood rather abruptly with an unexpected pregnancy, a very small ARMY salary, and a cross country move… it was tough! We started out with barely enough to make ends meet (and sometimes they didn’t) and unfortunately the decisions we made then regarding credit etc. followed us for quite some time.
You probably already know that money mistakes can take a long time to fix, it can be hard to overcome debt, bad credit, and all the other things that come along with making poor financial choices.
So it is super important to teach our kids at a young age how to handle money, it is important that we teach them good habits and how to make wise financial decisions. Kids can start understanding basic money concepts super early so these can be lifelong discussions!
So listen in to all of Virginia’s amazing advice, she has wisdom to share no matter what age your kids are (don’t worry it’s never too late!)
