Jump$tart CEO Discusses Budgeting, Family Values with Fatherly
In an article by Seth Simons on Fatherly.com, “How to Talk to Kids About Rich People,” Jump$tart Coalition President and CEO Laura Levine discussed talking about money with kids. She said:
“A budget is a plan, but it’s also based on what our family decides,” she suggests explaining to your kids. “[It’s] how our family decides we want to use money, and our family values saving. Maybe saving for college, maybe saving for the parents’ retirement … We allocate more of our money to some of those things, so the amount we have to spend is less.”
