    How to Talk to Your Kids About Money

    The College Funding Coach
    Wednesday, October 5th, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM 

     

    Equipped with more than two decades of financial planning experience and 11 years of coaching experience, Tom Henske is on a mission to help parents encourage their kids to develop financial literacy.

     

    Tom wants to get rid of the prevailing narrative that money is a taboo topic in the household. Currently, 70% of parents are reluctant to talk to their kids about money. Sure, it’s uncomfortable, but we talk to our kids about tons of other uncomfortable topics to prepare them for adulthood. Why not help them develop a healthy relationship before it’s too late?

     

    Tom has developed a casual and fun program to inspire both parents and kids to learn and develop better money habits. In this webinar, Tom will explain why and how you can help your kids avoid unnecessary challenges and stress in the future.
