Cameron Huddleston

I am an award-winning journalist with more than 17 years of experience writing about personal finance. My work has appeared in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, Business Insider, Chicago Tribune, Fortune, Huffington Post, Money, MSN, USA Today and many more print and online publications.

I also am a mom of three awesome kids and a caregiver for my own mom, who has Alzheimer’s disease. That makes me part of the sandwich generation. It’s a stressful situation I wouldn’t wish on anybody, but it’s given me great insight into how financially devastating Alzheimer’s and dementia can be. And it made me realize how important it is for adult children to be having conversations with their parents about their finances before a health issue or other emergency leaves their parents unable to manage their finances on their own. That’s why I wrote Mom and Dad, We Need to Talk: How to Have Essential Conversations With Your Parents About Their Finances. In the book, I offer encouragement and guidance to people who want have an open dialogue with their parents about their finances but don’t know where to start, what to ask, or how to get Mom and Dad to feel comfortable discussing a topic they might consider off-limits.

I was explaining how loans & borrowing from the bank works to my 7-year-old and he said no wonder his dad and I have so much money. No, I said, we have money because we work hard and get paid — not because we borrow money. #financialtruth
