Financial Literacy Month 2015
Give Your Vacation A Financial Mission
By Donell Edwards

Today’s post is a message to families.  In our post of March 27, 2014 we discussed the impact immediate family and relatives can have on spending.  Getting control of spending is a family affair, it is not something that can be done successfully unilaterally.  However, family members, especially children, must learn to master and apply effective personal money management skills, and must learn their role in contributing to the success of the family’s efforts to have a strong financial foundation.

I ran across a very interesting article yesterday in Forbes online, written by Jane Bianchi, entitled “A Vacation With A Money Mission: The Family Financial Retreat.”  Ms. Bianchi directs readers to the post which originally appeared in LearnVest.

In citing the purpose of the article Ms. Bianchi states, “Given that just 37% of adults say they talk openly with loved ones about money, chances are you’re long overdue for a financial pow-wow of your own.”

 

Vacation

Although you may not feel that using your vacation as a financial retreat to discuss family finances and how to manage things more effectively would be exciting, I believe you can see that it is a very good idea given that everyone in the family is usually so busy and has different schedules that may make it difficult to get together.

This is a great article for families and for anyone interested in devoting the time necessary to carefully examine their personal finances.
