Learn how to talk with your older parents about their finances.

Most adult children don’t talk to their parents about their parents’ finances. For many families, money is a taboo subject. However, family money talks are essential, and these conversations can’t wait for a crisis to force them to happen.

Hear from author Cameron Huddleston who will share advice from her book, "Mom and Dad, We Need to Talk: How to Have Essential Conversations With Your Parents About Their Finances."  You will learn: how to overcome your fears, ways to start the conversation, how to include siblings in on the conversation, what information to gather and what to do when one's parents are reluctant to talk about their finances.

Registration Required. Adults 18+.

This is an online event to be held via Zoom. An email with the Zoom link will be sent out to all registrants 3 hours prior to the event.

About the Author: Cameron Huddleston is an author, speaker and award-winning journalist with more than 20 years of experience writing about personal finance. Her work has appeared in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, Forbes.com, Business Insider, Chicago Tribune, Fortune, MSN, and Yahoo . She was inspired to write her book, Mom and Dad, We Need to Talk: How to Have Essential Conversations With Your Parents About Their Finances, while caring for her mom, who had Alzheimer's disease. She realized how important it was for adult children to have money talks with parents before an emergency or health issue leaves them unable to manage their finances on their own.

Since her book was released in 2019, she has been helping families break the taboo of talking about money and serves as Director of Education and Content at Carefull, the first service built to safeguard aging adults’ daily finances.
