Over and over I find myself wanting to congratulate some parents who are teaching their children HOW to live life, and not trying to prepare the path for their child. They are teaching how to be happy, not how to be rich. They teach how to value what is important in life.
Have a person in one of my classes in college that has a daughter she is raising by herself. She is an excellent parent to her teen age daughter. And, she is on a limited budget. My hat is off to her.
