Is it correct to say "to raise fiscally responsible kids?"

Or is the word fiscal reserved for describing government and other big entities?

I'm getting confused by the words: fiscally and financial, because recently I've read an article:


Do not confuse the words fiscal and financial.

Fiscal is related to government expenditures, revenues, and debt; while

financial is related to finance, finances, or financiers.

For example:

The government’s new fiscal policy has helped achieve price stability.

The company’s financial condition has improved since the new management took over.
I would say "financially-responsible kids". I agree with the quoted article, especially since financial is a more common word, therefore more easily understandable.
