The article discusses how financial planners can help their clients explain money management to their children. Many parents find it difficult to talk to their kids about money in a non-judgmental way, but financial planners talk about money and investing all the time. This allows them to speak objectively to children who may not understand how to budget or manage their credit. Many college students are in danger of amassing credit card debt, due to easy credit and a lack of education about money management.
