More parents are putting emphasis on teaching their kids how to better manage their finances. 83% of parents today say they have open discussions with their children about their finances, according to research by Bank of America into affluent parents and future parents as part of its Hindsight is 20/20 Personal Finance Report. Conversely, only 51% said they had conversations like these with their own parents.
