Talk dollars at dinner: 15 conversation starters for parents

It’s time to talk dollars at dinner 🍜 This month's theme: Earning. Spark the conversation by asking your kids and teens:

  1. “What is your dream job and how can you earn money doing it?” (Bonus points for talking through the top-paid jobs in the U.S.)

  2. "Can you think of any jobs that you think would be interesting to learn more about?"

  3. "Have you ever heard of someone having a side hustle? What do you think that is?"

  4. "What do you think it takes to be successful in a job and earn a lot of money?"

  5. "What do you think is the most important thing to consider when choosing a career?"

  6. "What do you think you could do to earn some extra money right now?"

  7. "Do you have any chores around the house that you could do to earn some allowance?"

  8. "Do you think it's better to have one job that pays a lot or multiple jobs that pay a little?"

  9. "Do you know anyone who has started their own business? What do you think they had to do to make it successful?"

  10. "What is something you would like to save up for? How much would you need to earn each week to save up for it?"

  11. "What are some lessons you've learned about earning money from your own experiences?"

  12. "Can you think of some examples of when earning money might be difficult? How can we overcome those challenges?"

  13. "Can you think of some things we could do to earn money as a family?"

  14. "Do you know what the difference between a job and a career is?”

  15. "How do you think you can start earning money now to save up for something you really want?"
