Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor shares how to engage your grown kids about preparations for their own retirement

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In his compact new book, "Parent's Guide to Your Child's Retirement: 21 Thought-Provoking Conversations to Have with Your Adult Children" (ISBN: 978-0999641415) Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor(SM) Rodger Alan Friedman, delivers an easy to follow structure that may serve to enable you and your children to have positive, engaging and thoughtful conversations regarding their future retirement.

"The book is designed for parents who have grown children who are in the workforce, children who should be salting away funds for their own future retirement. I did not write this for parents of toddlers, grade school kids or hormone raging teenagers," says Friedman. He writes that "My focus here is on kids that should be contributing to 401(k), 403(b) plans, IRA's and investing in real estate to build future wealth."

Friedman's new book is very deliberately interactive. After sharing with parents the three monsters potentially hiding under the beds of their one-day-to-be-retired kids that can hinder their retirement, he provides 21 conversation paths to engage parent and child in thoughtful, non-confrontational dialogue regarding the progress the adult child is making in preparing for their own future retirement.

Friedman clearly defends and weaves within the suggested conversations that parents are not inclined to fund their child's retirement. "Parents Guide to Your Child's Retirement" is a short 76-page guide designed as a parental tool to gauge if you should still be worried about your child.

Friedman can talk about:

* The 3 biggest risks - or monsters that can wreck your kid's retirement;
* The importance of understanding if your child has an entitlement mindset;
* Engaging in thoughtful conversations with grown kids to determine if they are a train-wreck waiting to happen or if they are on track for an independent future retirement;
* How the parents can help without funding their kids retirement.

Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor Shares How to Avoid Living in Your Kid’s Basement When You Retire

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In his compact new book, "The Mindset of Retirement Success: 7 Winning Strategies to Change Your Life" (ISBN: 978-0999641408), Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor Rodger Alan Friedman, delivers blunt advice to anyone who has been putting off retirement planning.

Friedman's new book is meant to provide the attitude change recalcitrant savers need to start saving now so they won't get caught short when their paychecks inevitably stop coming.

"There is a staggering amount of information available on preparing for retirement, so a lack of information is not the problem. Rather, it is putting that information to good use, and that is all about what you are willing to do and your mindset. This is what the book is all about," says Friedman.

"The Mindset of Retirement Success" consists of seven chapters each containing action steps. Chapters include: Retirement Issues You Will Face; Are You Willing To Do What Is Necessary?; Visualize Your Ideal Retirement; Hold Yourself Accountable; Don't Go It Alone, Assemble a Team; Set Higher Goals and Get Started Now.

In his book, Friedman writes: "Becoming aware of the potentially severe consequences if you do not make planning and investing for retirement a priority is a great first step. I doubt you would look forward to being a greeter at a big box store in your golden years. ... Most definitely, you do not want to end up in your sister's basement, or worse, your kids' basements because you failed to plan and then ran out of money. Explaining to your future granddaughter why you live in her basement is not a conversation you will eagerly anticipate. You will either have a plan for your future, or you will reluctantly be part of someone else's plans for you."

Friedman can talk about:
* Five major risks you face, as you get closer to retirement.
* The importance of paying yourself before you pay your credit card debt, bills or car loans.
* The advantages of having an accountability buddy and a team to have your back.
* Five actions to take to get started now.

The book is available at all major book sellers, including Amazon at: http://a.co/ecVzExo
