If you’ve been wondering how much you should be giving your kids for an allowance, or when you should open them up a bank account, you will get both those questions answered and a whole lot more on this episode of Spawned with Kristen and Liz. Our special guest Beth Kobliner, a New York Times bestselling author, financial expert, and mom-of-3, tackles all the kids and money questions we could squeeze into our 40-minute show. She’s out with a new book, Make Your Kid a Money Genius, and wow, it’s awesome! She even tells us what we’re doing right and wrong with our own kids.
