Does she (apart from her short tenure in a very comfortable and luxurious jail cell) know what poverty is all about? I bet she writes checks more than she writes proposals or pen songs.
No, I think she thinks spending money and swiping her card is exercise. Ssshhhh….I can hear her.“But dddaaadddd….I did exercise!”
Here’s what I think. Even if we’re blinding rich in this life, right now or in the future, it’s our job to help our kids deal with their finances in the future. My downfall had, partly, to do with my partying ways and was partly due to my lack of education and information. From what I can see right now, I don’t have much to worry about as far as Elder Son is concerned. Instead, I have my younger easy-spender one to watch.
Although money is not everything, that doesn’t make it alright to be irresponsible about it. And finally, education begins at home.
