Father’s Day: Money lessons can be priceless to your children

   Father’s Day is almost upon us. 
   If you’re a dad, you certainly may enjoy getting cards and gifts. 
   But, over time, you will gain even greater satisfaction from what you can give your children – such as some valuable financial lessons.
   Here are a few to consider:
   First, you could discuss the importance of setting goals and investing for them, even though these goals, such as retirement, may be decades away. 
   You can even make it more meaningful to your children by saying another goal is saving enough to help send them to college.
   Also, talk about the importance of putting time on your side. 
   Let your children know that it’s of great value to start investing as early as possible.
   You might also discuss some financial management issues, such as the necessity of living within your means and the need to pay your debts on time.
   By sharing these lessons with your children, you will give them something to think about – and you may even start them on the path to a lifetime of solid financial moves.
