  1. The story at minute ~8 strikes me as very bad parenting. Who gives a kid a whole *year* worth of money at once, when they’ve never had to budget before, and then doesn’t even tell them that’s what’s happening? There’s a reason that even employers don’t give an annual salary all at once.

      Hey Anna, that was a sample story, however what works for one family may not work for another, Charla has a unique way of parenting that is successful for her family.

      • Hey Anna! Charla here. The story my husband told about a friend he had in high school whose parents gave her all the money up front was not our recommendation of a parenting approach. Rather, it was a story to demonstrate the need for money skills. Many of us had “bad parents” who did not teach us money skills. That is why I have a course designed to help these parents with the tools they need to teach something that might be unfamiliar to them. It is probably best not to condemn their parenting, though.

  2. Definitely agree with your approach. Teaching them young about money, is necessary and you can’t expect kids to know something you haven’t taught. I also like that you give them the freedom to make their own choices so they can learn through real life lessons.

    My girls are just turned 18 and 16 and both have jobs and budget monthly. They even help their friends set up a budget!
