Orman also advises parents to teach children to work for their money. She suggests giving children tasks and paying them for doing work instead of giving out money for free. Orman warns that giving kids free money or an allowance may lead them to think that they deserve handouts. She also recommends that parents teach their children to live debt-free and tackle student loan debt.

Although Orman doesn’t have children of her own, she advises that parents cut off their children financially as soon as possible. According to the personal finance expert, the older the children get, the more they become financially dependent on their parents and the harder it is to cut them off. Orman says that it's best for parents to take the steps to make their children financially independent at the earliest opportunity.
