Poll: How Often Did You and Your Parent(s) Discuss Money?

National surveys indicate that the majority of parents across our country have never spoken seriously with their children about money. In our own surveys done with high school students, we also find that a majority of parents are not fulfilling their responsibility to raise children to understand how money and credit work and how to stay out of consumer debt.

More than half of the students we survey indicated that they’ve had, at most, two conversations about money in their lifetime with parents. And these were high school seniors!!!

What about you? Interested in describing your own experience about money conversations with your parent(s) from your formative years? In your teen years, how often did you have discussions with your parent(s) about money, credit and/or debt?

Thank you for your participation. Have a wonderful week!
