“Really warm and good feeling from our meeting! Kids loving the sense of being on their own, your discussion around values hit a sweet spot. And thank you so much…those evenings are the closest I have felt as a family in a long time!
The three most profound changes our teenage kids experienced from taking Marla’s Money Legacy program are:
1. Our three kids now have an appreciation for money that simply did not exist prior to beginning Marla’s program.
2. Their self-confidence & self-worth have increased dramatically now that they understand how finances & budgeting work and that they are now responsible for how much money they earn and how much they spend.
3. The kids previously had near open access to Mom’s wallet for both cash and credit card use. This does not exist any longer because Mom is not allowing it, but just as important, they are only rarely asking for money because they seek the grown up world of being independent. If they do ask for money, they can typically justify their reason for asking. If we give it, there is a whole different level of appreciation that did not exist previously.”

P.S. I loved coaching this family! It was incredibly rewarding knowing these college age kids are going into the world filled with financial dignity and armed with tools to help them be self-sufficient and confident.
