When I read “Should clients let kids know they’re rich?” by Amanda Schiavo in FinancialPlanning, I was reminded of the Money Camps for Kids I created in the 1990s. By the time I started the Sudden Money Institute (SMI) in 2000, my focus was more on the effects of wealth on the entire family’s dynamic. This area is so important to our community of practitioners at the Financial Transitionist Institute (the training division of SMI) that we have a Special Interest Track that focuses solely on Families-in-Transition. Led by Peggy Frye, who’s a veteran in the HNW world and a faculty member here at FTI/SMI, the group meets regularly to discuss their experiences as well as the research in their area. I asked Peggy for some guidance in working with HNW families and talking to kids about money.
