Kids Want More Guidance on Money Matters, yet Parents Lacking as Financial Role Models, T. Rowe Price Survey Finds
The 2012 Parents, Kids & Money Survey from T. Rowe Price, which surveyed parents, and for the first time, their kids, reveals that kids ages 8 to 14 want to know more about money matters, particularly about saving and how to make money. Yet, while talking about money is generally encouraged, and 76% of parents are having money conversations with their kids at least somewhat often, survey findings indicate that parents are not doing enough to teach their kids basic financial lessons.
The recent gyrations in stock prices and accompanying flood of news coverage provide parents with an excellent opportunity to discuss money matters with their children, says T. Rowe Price.
