Recently, our local news and information channel, NY1 News, invited Women & Co. to share tips and tools for raising money-smart kids for a seven-part series they were producing — a topic of frequent, vibrant conversation among the parents, godparents, aunts, uncles, and “to-bes” on the team. We don’t always agree on what to do, which makes for richer conversation and content to bring to our readers — I hope you will agree with me on that!

This series, which you can learn more about here, will tackle how to start a conversation with your kids, ways to turn daily activities such as a trip to the library or the grocery store into teachable money moments; the pros and cons of allowances, credit cards and the like; and even how to turn gift-giving into lessons that will last a lifetime.

For those of you looking to take conversations about money with the little people in your life to the next level, here’s a list of our favorite Women & Co. articles on the subject:
