We’re talking today about how to avoid screwing up your kid’s relationship with money. As parents, our job is to raise amazing adults to one day replace us! And even if you don’t currently have kids, or maybe you know that you never will- today’s conversation will do a great job shedding some light on why you think and feel the way you do about your personal finances. Bobbi Rebell is a Certified Financial Planner, she’s host of the Money Tips for Financial Grownups podcast, and she’s also the author of “Launching Financial Grownups”. The book is a call to action for parents who want the best for their kids, but who are beginning to realize that their own pursuit of financial independence has to become a priority as well. We talk about parenting styles, the increasing trend of boomerang college students, ways that we can strategically help our kids with money, and personal finance conversations between parents and adult children as well.

You can keep up with Bobbi over on her site and be sure to check out her book “Launching Financial Grownups: Live Your Richest Life by Helping Your (Almost) Adult Kids Become Everyday Money Smart”

  • Extra cash – And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the 80,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. That’s $1,000 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
