Nearly three-quarters of parents are having regular conversations about money with their children. Their children, however, don't think these conversations are enough, according to a March 2013 survey from investment firm T. Rowe Price.
While more than half of parents said they included their kids in discussions about shopping and family vacation planning, just 39 percent said they involve them in discussions about family savings goals.
