Understanding Multigenerational Estate Planning Part 2 Absolute Trust Talk

    • Business

Welcome back! In our last episode of Absolute Trust Talk, we were joined by expert psychotherapist and certified coach Tess Brigham, MFT, BCC, to discuss the differences between generations and, more specifically, examine the unique dynamics between Baby Boomer parents and Millennial children. 
In this episode, we continue our conversation with Tess, focusing on the interactions between Gen X parents and Gen Z children. These two generations are very interesting as Gen Xers were heavily influenced by events like the Persian Gulf War, the women’s movement, and high divorce rates. As Tess points out, this generation is a very “figure it out on your own” group. Whereas Gen Zers are true digital natives and have no real concept of life before technology. We hope you will listen in as we talk about how these generations’ unique experiences shaped their approach to estate planning. Plus, we share some special insights from real client stories! 
Time-stamped Show Notes: 
0:00 Introduction
1:19 To kick off the episode, Tess gives us a little background refresher on what types of events and movements had an impact on these two generations. 
7:30 One way the younger generations differ from the older ones, in terms of estate planning, is how they consider the possibility of divorce and whether they want to burden their children with responsibility. Listen in to learn more! 
10:55 We’re likely all familiar with the stereotype that the oldest daughter always gets the responsibility of taking care of her parents, but will this continue with the newer generations? 
14:05 At the end of the day, women are biologically and evolutionarily designed to care for family, so perhaps we won’t see a change in the oldest-daughter-caretaker stereotype after all. Only time will tell! 
15:29 As we wrap up the show, we highlight why it’s important to analyze how these heavy conversations play out among generations.
