How to Plan for Your Financial Future as a New Parent

SARA BAILEY  |  JAN 24, 2020

Having a child changes your life in several ways, especially when it comes to planning for the future. Part of adjusting to life as a new parent involves getting your finances in order. While financial planning may not be on your list of immediate priorities after the birth of your child, having money conversations with your spouse and starting up a realistic financial plan is essential for minimizing stress and ensuring your family is set up for success. Here are some smart financial moves every new parent should make.

How to Start Planning Your Life Finances in Your Teens​


Financial planning is something that very few young people are actually taught, which means that most of us had to figure it out for ourselves at some point in our 20s. The truth is that it can be hard to think about big life expenses while you’re still a teen, especially if you are going to college or working part-time before starting your career. However, the sooner you become familiar with the costs that will crop up throughout your life, the more prepared you will be to manage your money once you start making a regular income.

Goodbye, Back-to-School Blues


As parents, we want our children to thrive during the fragile back-to-school season. Unfortunately, there are a multitude of reasons this might not happen. From fears of their new responsibility and social anxiety to personal problems at home and having the wrong homework setup, your child faces issues each day that you may not consider. If you find yourself with a child unable to cope with the end of summer, keep reading for ways to help them keep their cool.
