Meet with your financial advisor

If you’ve got an accountant or financial advisor, does your child know about him or her? Sometimes, kids don’t realize that we all need a little bit of help and support. Tell your child that even you get help on some financial matters – that way, she’ll always feel comfortable asking questions and getting help later in life. You also want her to hear the terms you and your financial advisor use when discussing money issues.

Terms to teach: Credit cards, debit cards, prepaid cards, debt, loan, mortgage, stocks
