Growing up in a family of wealth is often filled with challenges. Parenting children in this environment to become competent and confident stewards of wealth presents its own challenges. Experiential learning is so important for children when it comes to financial awareness, education, and preparation. When is a good time to start preparing your children and what are some age-appropriate tools for young children, ‘tweens and teens, how to use an allowance to teach budgeting and wants vs. needs, how much information to share, what rules to set, and what expectations to create… the questions are endless and there isn’t always one right answer. Each situation is unique and often, expert help is required.
