Research Projected Salaries
Increase your child's financial sense by asking him to research the careers he's expressed an interest in, and how much money individuals in those fields are expected to earn 10 to 15 years from now. It will likely be an eye-opening experience for both of you! Talk about what degrees are necessary for various careers, as well. And discuss anything that's helped you to progress, personally, and what — if anything — you'd do differently if you were choosing a career today.
