Money is a complex topic, and talking about money may bring up a range of complicated feelings. However, if you avoid the topic, you may miss an important opportunity to educate your children and prepare them for financial success. By starting these conversations early, you make money a family matter and set the foundation for an ongoing dialogue.

As a parent, you want to prepare your children for a lifetime of success. Teaching your kids about the value of money—how to earn it, what you can do with it, what it means to you—can help them establish a healthy relationship with  money so they make smart, informed decisions about their financial futures.

In this webinar, you'll learn how to prepare to have the money conversation with your children, to break the ice to discuss the mechanics of money and also how to continue the conversation to figure out the meaning of money.
