That didn't come out right.
Do you think your parents did the best job they could raising you?
I actually wish they did a little better. I would have loved it if we only bought what we needed and not what we wanted. I would have loved to learn how to budget my money at an early age. I think if my parents taught me this early on, I wouldn't have had the financial problems I do now. I would have scrimped and saved EVERYTHING I made, spending money only on what I needed (car note, gas, car insurance, and the brick Nokia T-Mobile cell phone). If I did that, I would have been FINE, not scrambling at the age of 30. (Well, almost 30.)

I think my parents could have done a better job by communicating with other parents, reading books about psychology and parenting, and staying in touch with what was going on in other families. They isolated themselves and in doing so made a lot of mistakes. I do think there was no malice in my parents. I think they set out wanting to do a good job but were so old fashioned that they wouldn't change or grow.
