Growing Up Financially Independent, with Doug Nordman and Carol Pittner

The MapleMoney Show

Every parent wants the best for their children, which is why we teach them how to manage money properly. And while we sometimes get mixed results, the truth is that it’s a lot cheaper to make mistakes with money when you’re 12-years old. My guest this week had an excellent example to follow as she was growing up. That’s because Carol Pittner’s parents became financially independent before she turned 10. And when her dad retired early at age 41, Carol witnessed firsthand the benefits of saving money early and often, and she’s followed in his footsteps ever since. Carol and her father Doug Nordman join me on the show this week to discuss what it’s like to grow up financially independent.

1108: How to Talk to Your Kids About Money with Authors Doug Nordman and Carol Pittner

So Money with Farnoosh Torabi

Whether you’re struggling for the words (and patience) to discuss topics like allowances and college costs with your teenager or want to encourage your 4th grader to save at a young age, my guests have advice on how to teach financial principles to your kids throughout the years. Doug Nordman and Carol Pittner are the father-daughter authors of the book Raising Your Money-Savvy Family for Next Generation Financial Independence. The book is part personal stories, part practical advice, guiding readers on how to instill financial values in their kids starting as early as Kindergarten, or as the authors say, “after they stop eating money.” We discuss their own personal memories of discussing money when Carol was growing up, as well as how families that may be struggling with money can open up to their kids about it in a meaningful (and not scary) way.

136: Secrets of a Money Savvy Family with Doug Nordman and Carol Pittner

BiggerPockets Money Podcast

Doug Nordman wanted to teach his daughter about money. But he knew that to get it right, he’d have to start when she was very very small. So he did. First, he taught her how to count, then he taught her how to add, then he showed her what she could do with money by using cash in transactions.As Carol got older, she was able to handle the cash herself, learning how to make change, count change, etc. Carol started “earning” her own money, through allowance and jobs - which could only be done after her (non-paid) chores were complete.Doug’s common-sense approach to teaching his daughter about money is actually quite brilliant. She starts learning about money - and making money mistakes - when the stakes are low. Your 8-year-old making a $20 mistake is far better than your 20 year old making a $10,000 mistake because he or she never learned how to manage money.Carol joins her dad to talk about how these teachings affected her life - and how she is planning on teaching her own daughter about money and finances. Carol and Doug have combined their recollections of this time together and written a book called Raising Your Money-Savvy Family For Next Generation Financial Independence, and it is the blueprint for exactly how to raise children who are ‘good with money’ and how to prepare them to be adults who are great with money.If you’re struggling with how to teach your children about money, this is a must-listen episode.In This Episode We Cover:Doug's journey with moneyHow he learned to be smart about moneyHow he budgeted money on raising a childWhat does high savings rate means to himCarol's outlook about financeCarol's financial storyOverview of Carol's financial positionLean FITalking about Carol's husband and his view about moneyDoug's advice on how to approach your kids when you are just starting out on this journeyWhere they planted their moneyAnd SO much more!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets Money Facebook GroupCNBCChooseFIPrivacy Policy and California Privacy Notice.
