Talking to kids about money


Guest: Ron Lieber

Kids ask a lot of questions about money. Are we rich? How much money do you make? Why is our house so much smaller than my friend’s? So what’s the best way to teach them about money? Should you show your child your pay check, the heating bill, the credit card statement, the dinner check? New York Times “Your Money” columnist RON LIEBER thinks it’s very important to talk to your child about money early on and often, to teach them the value of money and about your values around money. He talks to Marty about his new book, The Opposite of Spoiled: Raising Kids Who Are Grounded, Generous, and Smart about Money.
