Celebrate Mother’s Day by beginning an important conversation with your mother or daughter. You’ve supported each other through the life’s sunniest days and coldest nights. Now it’s time to open a new chapter of your mother/daughter relationship. It’s time to talk about money.
Those were the days when she was little enough to believe Mom could hold the sun in her hand. But now the two of you can tackle the money world together. Just give it a chance.
Not sure where to begin? Think about all those money questions you might like to ask your mom, or the answers you would like to share with your daughter. Think about the ways you are just alike, and the ways you are oh-so-completely different, when it comes to making choices about your money.
We’ll take care of the conversation starters; All you need to do is register with your Twitter accounts. Moms and daughters can plan to show up together, not necessarily in the same geographic location, but in the same virtual online room! Or if you can’t make it together, one of you can participate and make note of the discussion topics we pose. You’ll learn a great deal about your approach to finance and ways to improve it.
Just think, this event could have lasting significance for the two of you, and it won’t cost a thing.
