What is one of the number one tips to ensure lasting generational wealth for your family? Teach your children about money.

Helping your children learn about spending, saving, and sharing helps them improve their financial literacy at an early age and develop healthy, smart financial habits that last for a lifetime.

Recently I had the opportunity to appear on the Maple Money Podcast with Tom Drake to discuss the money lessons parents and grandparents need to be teaching their children. From the three jar method to how to help your children begin investing, Tom and I had an excellent discussion about a number of ways parents can begin helping their children develop strong financial skills today.
