Easy Ways to Talk About Finances
Talking about finances can be an overwhelming discussion, especially with your spouse, partner, or children. After all, discussions about money can lead to disagreements, frustration, and even discord in your relationship. But avoiding the topic can lead to issues now and in the future, so it's important to face it head-on and have a serious talk about finances.
Most financial experts agree that it's good for couples to talk about money early in their relationship. You don't have to share how much you make on the first date, but it's important to determine your financial compatibility now and into the future. Talk about your expectations and goals when it comes to finances. You can even start with less touchy points of conversation, such as your credit history or saving and spending strategies for things like vacations or savings plans.
When talking to your children about money, it's best to focus on simple concepts that can help kids understand the importance of saving and earning. You might discuss the value of each coin and bill with younger kids, while those who are able to complete chores can engage in a discussion about allowance and how to earn their own money. Consider throwing in an object lesson about interest by adding money to their savings jar.
Learning how to earn and manage money from a young age can benefit your children in the long run, so it's worth talking about at every stage of development. If you've struggled with financial management or money issues in the past, you can always start fresh and gain new skills to become a better keeper of your own income. Be open and honest with yourself, as well as your family, to move forward into the future with confidence and financial strength.
