Parents, Kids & Money

Interesting but worrisome survey from T. Rowe Price “Parents, Kids & Money Survey” 2013 The survey set out to understand the basic financial knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of both parents and their children age 8-14 . The survey included 1.014 parents and 839 children in the US. The study was quite comprehensive..but we will share 3 with you here

Kids and Money

And…Where do family conversations on money fit with everything else there is to talk to our kids about?

Topics to discuss with kids

Interesting but more worrying.. 50% or less of parents surveyed have strong financial habits to pass along to their children. Notably: Only 46% had life insurance. While 46% are saving for a family vacation & 39% save throughout the year for holiday shopping; only 26% have an up-to-date will.

Parents not covering financial basics
