The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Financial Independence Week Edition

This week is Financial Independence Week at The Simple Dollar. Each day, I’ll be writing two articles on the theme of children gaining financial indepenedence from their parents/guardians. There are a lot of complex issues at stake – communications, finance, relationships, emotions – and there are some general guidelines that both parents and children can think about when working through how children can begin to fly on their own. At the end of the week, I’ll write a summary of the series. For now, let’s look at a couple personal finance articles.
