Putting Your Child's Name on the Deed

NPR's Madeleine Brand talks with regular personal finance contributor Michelle Singletary about the wisdom of putting a child's name on the title of your home — a strategy many think will save money in the long run, but one that has its own pitfalls. Singletary writes the syndicated column "The Color of Money" for The Washington Post and is the author of Spend Well, Live Rich: How to Get What You Want with the Money You Have.
