"Money is no longer the big taboo it used to be," said Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com, a credit card comparison website. "After decades of stagnant wages, sky-high college tuition fees, and waves of layoffs, it's more important than ever that parents talk to their kids about money -- and parents seem to be aware of this."
