Parent-Teen Money Coaching Workshop

The Parent-Teen Money Coaching Workshop helps parents connect with their teens to learn how to handle money responsibly and effectively. It’s frightening to realize that 85 per cent of high school students receive no school-based personal finance education whatsoever.
Sarah is a mom, a CPA, and the author of “Play The Real-Life Money Game With Your Teen.” She has more than 25 years of experience gained from working with families and money in financial and accounting fields. She is passionate about changing the way families think about teens and money. An expert on family financial dynamics, Sarah Williamson uses her parent-teen money coaching workshops to guide parents step-by-step toward safely transferring control of money to their teen so he or she can take more personal responsibility for managing his or her own finances.
In just one day, Sarah’s parent-teen money coaching workshop will teach parents how to help their teens get started on the path toward becoming financially responsible adults. Parents and their teens learn how to “play” The Real-Life Money Game® using worksheets and tools from the book. Each parent/teen pair receives the book “Play The Real-Life Money Game With Your Teen”, a workbook along with an audio/video DVD of each episode, and an electronic file of the appendix worksheets.
