It's Easier to Build Financially Capable Kids Than Repair Broke Adults

Today’s fantastic family finance article is:

Frederick Douglass Quote

Excuses abound for failing to teach our kids basic personal finance skills.

  • It’s not my job. Schools should teach that.
  • I just don’t have time.
  • I’m not qualified — I struggle with money myself.
  • It’s uncomfortable to talk about money. That topic is taboo in our family.

Frederick Douglass, the famous African American abolitionist, would have had little sympathy. Mac Thomson explains why in today’s article featuring a classic Douglass quote.

If you think it’s hard or inconvenient to teach your kids good money habits now, just you wait.

Strike that. Just do it. Now.
