From Dr. Lily at Richer Insights … “The kinds of thoughts we have as adults have largely been influenced by the messages we received during our childhood.
Parents are our early models and much of how they did things influenced how we do things today. We may have taken on much of their bad habits and attitudes about money in ways we may not even be aware of. If your parents said things such as “we can’t afford this” or “we don’t have enough money,” this may influence your core beliefs about money. These core beliefs later become “money scripts.”
