Millennials find themselves ill-prepared to meet current financial challenges. Research has shown that the financial knowledge and principles that children retain as they transition to adulthood mainly come from their parents. However, most financial education research has focused on outside sources like public schools. The research that has been conducted on parental education has not yet identified specific principles and practices that are important for parents to model. The purpose of this paper is to begin this exploration. This qualitative, multigenerational study explored what Millennials, their parents, and grandparents remember their parents modeling as well as those that parents and grandparents report modeling to their children. Thematic coding of the interviews revealed three core subthemes: “Acquiring Money Wisely,” “Managing Money Wisely,” and “Spending Money Wisely.”
