  • Just make sure they get a good education.

  • Teach kids that the most important things in life are not material.

  • ask your grandparents. . . honestly many of them were through the depression. . . if you ask my G-Gram she will tell you things haven't changed. And times were just as rough then. . . Education is key, but also teach them principles to live by. . . money isn't everything and never was. . . people might want to make it all about money, but once upon a time. . . we raised families and there was less than we have today. . . So what is your question?

  • The problem is not that there aren't any jobs, because there are jobs. It's that a majority of the people aren't willing to work at McDonald's, Macy's, or even apply to any place that doesn't resemble where they worked previously. Beggers can't be choosers and unfortunately too many people have given up.

    We CAN turn this economy around if we start circulating money through the community. If we create more jobs, even if it's through Etsy, we can circulate money. If we start up a baking shop we're employing the farmers who produce the goods, the machinest who produces our equipment, the land owner who provides our shop, etc. We're circulating money through the community just buy opening up one shop. Obama can't create jobs only the community can and we can turn this economy around if we just stop fighting ourselves and one another. Stand together and put money back into our community!!!

    Then raise kids in between.

  • Raise your child with love. We need to get over the materialistic importance and put the focus on family. Make do with what you do have and don't worry about what others have.
