Unfortunately for many, our kids like to watch us. Sometimes, it’s when we least want it, like when we’ve just stubbed our toe and are uttering fancifully adult words. Or maybe when that ref didn’t make the right call and we want to let him know just how we felt about it. Or, as many moms will frequently attest to, even when you’re sitting on the toilet, kids find a way to watch you. And when it comes to money, it’s hardly any different.
If our kids grow up without any purposeful advice on how to manage their money, they default to what they’ve been shown. And sometimes, we don’t always show them the best direction. Are you guilty of any of these practices?
