My mom has a pretty detailed picture of how much money I make and how much money I save each month. She knows that I’m maxing out my 401(k) and my Roth IRA, saving for a down payment and a car replacement, and investing other money for the long-term.
On the other hand, my mom has recommend to me that I don’t tell my dad how much money I’m making. He has a rough idea. He knew how much I started at and how much of a raise I got this year, but my mom has highly recommended to me that he doesn’t need to know the exact dollar amount that I will gross over the course of this year.
This feels a bit weird to me to specifically not tell my dad how much money I make. I don’t care if he knows, but I’m going to take my mom’s recommendation since she clearly knows him better than I do.
Do your parents know the details of how much money you make or save?
