Intuitive Finance with Dylan Bain

Fiscally Savage

Take Control. Live Free.

Jan 24, 2023

Seemingly simple day-to-day interactions between parents and children can have lasting effects on the latter. For instance, they can give rise to money wounds — stories, beliefs, and thought patterns around money that keep us from abundance.


If left unchecked, money wounds can trickle down from generation to generation. But they don’t have to. We can and should break the cycle for our children, and it starts with understanding our role as parents.


In today’s episode, Dylan talks about how children grow and mature, what our roles as parents are, and how this all connects to our financial lives.
