I created Money Prodigy to prevent your child (and mine) from learning how to manage their money the hard-knocks way. I want your child to understand that money is a tool. And I want to help teach them how to use that tool. I also want to help open the lines of communication between you and your child about money so that if the times do get tough — and let’s face it, they do at some point in most people’s lives — they know they can always come to talk to you about things. In other words, as you use the resources + guidance I provide for you here, you’ll gradually move from managing their money life, to becoming a mentor who they can trust and come to with their money problems as a teen and young adult.
