To help grandparents talk to their grandchildren about money, Beacham launched a new column this week, Money Savvy Grands. This new financial advice column is featured on, an on-line gathering place for women over 55. This new thought-provoking column highlights financial literacy and money management challenges faced by grandparents as they relate to their grandchildren.

Beacham, who leads grandparent workshops, regularly sees how much grandparents want to give their grandchildren financial literacy tools as gifts or to give to their own children to make the choice. "Grandparents are in a unique position when it comes to their grandchildren,” notes Beacham. “They don’t want to critique the parents’ style of parenting; rather they want to support it. Money education is a great place to interject that support. Grandparents have the experience and the time, and parents are happy to get the extra help."

Beacham grew up with her grandmother and understands the power a grandparent has when delivering a message. "Grandparents are unconditional when they educate their grandchildren. It makes the message easier to embrace," says Beacham.
