We always think money management is only for the 1%. It’s not. Jonathan Clements is the personal finance columnist for the Wall Street Journal and a monthly guest on the Tim Danahey Show. He makes financial planning accessible for everyone. This month he talks about teaching our kids the basics of saving money – in real speak. Learn how to get kids involved with family financial decisions. For example, if you’re at a restaurant and your child wants a soft drink for $2. Do you say “yes” or “no” even though you would prefer your child not drink it? Try, “You can have the $2 soft drink or $1 for your savings. You decide.” Kids get it and they become involved with family finances and limitations. Jonathan is a good man, easy to hear, and worthy of your regular participation.
