I’ve been at a conference most of this week, so I didn’t get a chance to visit all the blogs I normally do. But I have seen a ton of interesting posts pop up in my reader, so I’m looking forward to getting caught up with everyone and seeing what’s on your minds.
This week I posted 3 Steps to Raising Financially Confident Children. It’s not always easy to know where to draw the line as parents. We want to give our kids a good life, but sometimes we cross that line and move into Helicopter or Snow Plow Parenting mode. We don’t allow our kids to experience life, which includes owning our mistakes and overcoming disappointment. As much as it hurts me when my girls are hurting, I’m not there to “fix” life for them, but to love them and cheer them on. Or as my friend, Brian from Luke 1428 said in his comment, “be a loving guide”.
Since I didn’t get a chance to visit many blogs this week, I decided to share an interesting infographic I found on Bad Spending Habits and How to Fix Them from Credit Loan.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
