Funny parenting comic

Money is a problem. For most all of us. But, teaching our kids about money is an extreme challenge today for a variety for a variety of reasons. The sense of entitlement pervades our society! Well, this Thursday September, 5 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET we are going to talk money, allowance, and teaching our kids the value of a buck! We are pleased to have Pam Whitlock of MoneyTrail.net to join us and share her expertise! This is NOT to be missed!

    Well stated. Kids need to make stupid mistakes with their allowances when they are 12. Love the cartoon. Mom looks like an old friend who would do that.
