It's an uncomfortable thing to talk about. You're not sure how to bring it up, and your kids aren't jumping up and down to talk with you about it either. No, it's not that talk, it's the other talk. The one about money. Saving, budgeting, tracking, investing, and giving back. The Money Talk. A talk that many of our parents never had with us. We had to learn it the hard way: on our own.
One of FamilyMint's partners, The National Financial Educators Council (NFEC) is launching a series of ads about "The Talk", and we're so happy to see it! Like the picture on the right, the ads liken financial illiteracy to a young child walking across a busy street blindfolded. They encourage all of us to take the time to pass along what you've learned so far about money management and to help give them a leg up in how money will affect their lives.
