Funny thing is, 32% of parents feel they talk with their kids very often, but only 24% of the kids felt the same way.
Thats almost a 10% difference.
So either parents aren’t talking or kids aren’t listening…
Honestly, kids trust what you say, but if money isn’t your best subject then I’m sure the conversation gets ugly, or you avoid it all together.
Topics Kids Wished Parents Talked More About
The top 5 topics kids want to know more about is exactly the top 5 topics we teach at Prosperity4kids. Saving, Investing, and Smart Spending are what we teach in Money Mama, and The Allowance Chart, teaches kids how to earn more money.

Below you will see what didn’t make it into the top 5 topics. But no worries because when you teach children the top 5 things they do want to know, the bottom list will naturally be taught at the same time.
