The Ungrateful Children

Your children have no respect for or regard of money because you’ve never taught them to — they actually think it magically grows on trees.

Dear Betty,

You are reaping what you sowed, my dear.  Your children have no respect for or regard of money because you’ve never taught them to — they actually think it magically grows on trees.  And as they’ve grown, so has their appetite for material possessions.

Stop giving them money to spend!  And make them figure out how to pay their bills (yes, children, this means acquiring a job and holding onto it, whilst attending school at the same time).
