The Wall Street Journal recently offered a pep-talk for estate planning parents in a recent article aptly titled, “The Inheritance Conversation. Ugh.

One of the key reasons for this essential intergenerational communication is to prepare the inheriting generation for the attending responsibilities. One challenge, of course, is that any “inheritance” carries the risk of robbing a developing person of their work ethic.

In short, what makes you, your assets, and your heirs unique? That is what needs to be understood and communicated. The sooner you have the inheritance talk, the better it will be for all concerned.
