Talking to your kids about inheritance

Estate planning can be highly emotional and may also generate uncertainty. For example, you could be unsure of which type of estate plan to go with or you could be worried about how your children will react to the way in which you decide to distribute your assets among beneficiaries. If you are struggling with these types of challenges, it may be helpful to sit down and carefully assess the situation. Moreover, you might find that talking to your children about the situation is beneficial and provides a clearer understanding. However, they may not agree with your decisions, but it is important to remain firm and do what you believe is best.
