Getting Personal: Money and your parents

Tess Vigeland and Chris Farrell Nov 24, 2011

On tap for this week: A soon-to-be certified financial planner is unsure how to talk to her parents about their money and another listener — who just fixed a big drain on her mother’s finances — wants to know how to prevent financial disasters from happening her mom again. We also check in with a previous caller who wanted to know whether he should take a six-month trip around the world with his wife.
