Disrupt Yourself Podcast with Whitney Johnson

Aug 2, 2022

Money can be one of the hardest things to talk about with your kids. It's emotional, and often tied to feelings of generational self-worth. But just like the "Birds and the Bees," we also need to be honest about "Dollars and Cents."

That's where financial journalist, author, and podcaster Bobbi Rebell comes in. She has written extensively about the financial relationship between parents and children, which — at its core — is based on love.

Her book, "Launching Financial Grown-Ups," unpacks the complexities of imparting financial literacy on your kids. Bobbi explains that meeting your kids where they are, at the appropriate moment, and having an honest dialogue about money – even your own struggles with it – leads to far better outcomes than avoiding the topic or pretending everything’s perfect.
