A Guide to Talking Finances with Our Daughters!
As many as 56% of women feel that they’d rather not talk about money with their loved ones. Some women say they were raised not to discuss money and others feel like the information is just too personal. Yet with many women controlling household budgets and raising the next generation of female earners, this could be a recipe for disaster in some homes and for society at large.

How a Mother Should Talk About Money with Her Daughter helps readers broach money topics with their daughters in a meaningful, compassionate, and even fun way. It speaks to parents who may feel inadequate about their own money skills but still want to discuss money with their daughters while helping them build good financial habits. The goal is to start conversations that leave parents and girls empowered to love themselves (through good money management) and make the world a better place with their financial resources. Topics include how to save as a young person, the pros and cons of investing, how to determine which college is right (in terms of finances and future job prospects), how to determine a future partner is right (in terms of similar financial goals), and more.
