**Reminder that my popular Taming Your Triggers workshop is currently open for enrollment at yourparentingmojo.com/tamingyourtriggers - learn the sources of your triggers, how to feel triggered less often, and what to do on the fewer occasions when it still happens**
Think about your parents.
Now think about money.
What kinds of ideas, images, and feelings came to mind?
Do you recall any discussions about money - or were these hidden from you?
Was there always enough to go around - or were you ever-conscious of its absence?
What little incidents do you recall that ended up becoming defining 'money scripts' of your life?
Perhaps it won't be a shock to learn that just as we learned how to raise children from our parents, we also learned how to think about money from them.  And as we will raise our children the way we were raised unless we choose a different path, we will also pass on our ideas about money - unless we decide differently.
Today we hear from Dr. Brad Klontz, co-author of the book Mind over Money: Overcoming the Money Disorders That Threaten Our Financial Health, who helps us to think through the money scripts we want to pass on to our children - and how to do this.
