  • I saw a mother at a ball park, and her son started to wonder too far and instead of yelling at him to stop or come back, she spoke to him in a calm and normal tone and told him his boundaries. I thought you don't have to yell at your kids to make an statement. This was before I had kids, but still I find it encouraging.

  • I know someone who has her kids do all their own school shopping on a budget by the time they hit middle school. I know she started smaller when they were young, but I feel awful because my 13 year old cannot handle money at all.
