Teaching Kids About Money With N.Y. Times Columnist Ron Lieber

igor kislev

Of all the difficult conversations between parents and children, talking about money may be the one parents are the least prepared for. This, despite the constant stream of financial news and data all around us. We talk with New York Times columnist Ron Lieber about where parents should draw the line between educating their children about money and unnecessarily involving them in the financial stress of an adult life.


  • Ron Lieber: “Your Money” columnist for The New York Times and author of "The Opposite of Spoiled," his guide to teaching kids about money and values.

Lieber will be in New Hampshire on March 30th for an event in Portsmouth talking about his new book.
