What Are You Reading? Why "A" Students Work For "C" Students - Part One, Chapter Two

Chapter's two action step for parents was: Take time to discuss money and the role it plays in life.

When I was growing up, money wasn't abundant in our household. It was a big source of stress to my parents and as a result, talking about money was taboo. If money was part of a conversation, that conversation was more an argument. I learned very little about money in that stage of my life.

In this chapter's action step, Robert suggest money issues should be discussed as a family. Discuss real life money problems when they occur in the course of the everyday life. Talk about the problems and challenges, what causes them and how to resolve them. Make your home a place to discuss money not argue about it.
