Today’s essay is by Michael Klein, a student at the University of Arizona. He shares how early conversations about money and personal finance with his parents helped him throughout his life.
Talking finances with my parents was a pretty easygoing topic of discussion. I started a savings account when I was about 12 years old because I learned that putting money into a savings account earned you interest.
Learning about personal finance, although new to me, wasn’t hard to understand because of the education both my parents had received.
