Authority Magazine: Licensed Psychotherapist & Author Joyce Marter: “Why Divorce is The Perfect Time to Teach Children About Money”
Outlet: Authority Magazine
Divorce is a time of financial change and transition and as much as parents may try to protect their kids from worry or being caught in between financial disagreements between the parents, kids are smart and are going to be aware that financial changes and concerns are likely happening. Depending on the age of your children, share what is appropriate and understandable for their age remembering not to speak disparagingly about their other parent, which puts them in the middle. Providing honest transparency in a way that has boundaries and appropriate will foster a feeling of trust and security and even empowerment for children.
