What are the children learning about $$$?
Here’s a question:
What emotional messages are your children receiving from you about prosperity?
Beyond what are you saying to them – what do you imagine they feel from you?
Scientists that study the brain often say, “Neurons that fire together, wire together.” This means that the information you communicate, consciously and unconsciously, AS WELL AS the emotional tone of that communication are embedding into the nervous system of your growing people.
For example, many parents I work with often reflect that growing up, they knew their family didn’t have a lot of money – but it wasn’t from any explicit conversation or look at an unbalanced checkbook. Rather it was the tone, the inflection, the emotions under the communication of money and prosperity that the child easily and clearly picked up on. If this sounds like the way you were raised, you’re not alone. And it may have impacted the way you see prosperity today.
So, with that said here are a few questions to chew on:
How do I hope my my child(ren) wire emotionally around prosperity?
How will I communicate now so that healthy emotions and information about prosperity gets wired into their neurology?
If these questions are stumping you, it’s likely you are not alone. These are BIG questions. I assure you that if you take the time to play with these, you will stumble on some new ways to help you and your family get where you want to go.

P.S. If shining a light on your prosperity feels evocative or even a teensy bit interesting, then you’re going to love Evolve: a year long program that teaches the big concepts of family life through actual strategies you can use every day. Our community of hundreds of families spends a quarter of a year understanding and improving their prosperity. Enrollment for 2017 begins in January, and this year is going to be our best one yet!
