Question: When we were growing up my father constantly reminded us to be responsible with money. But I always got the feeling with him it was about much more than being responsible. He seemed to get a lot of validation out of how much money we had, which I think went too far. As a result, I find myself shy about teaching my own kids financial responsibility for fear they’ll get the same message from me. Suggestions?

 

Most of the time we communicate our messages very clearly, despite what we say.

No where is that more true than in the home.

The good news is they aren’t the only ones out there.
