Raised Healthy, Wealthy & Wise: Raising productive and motivated children in an age of abundance
Author talk with Coventry Edwards-Pitt Counterintuitive as it seems, above a certain level of wealth, parenting becomes harder, not easier.  We’ve all heard stories of difficulties with children who are entitled, unproductive, and dissipative.  But what about the success stories?  Children raised with wealth who grew up to be productive, self-motivated, financially independent, and content? Wealth advisor Covie Edwards-Pitt sought out these success stories and collected the key lessons they revealed in her recently published book, Raised Healthy, Wealthy & Wise. In this session, she will share what works when raising wealthy children to lead fulfilling and productive lives.
