I’m beginning to prepare myself for the fall when both of my children are off at school.  I really need some new hobbies.

I need some ideas.  What are some of your hobbies and how did you get started?

Teenagers Making Wise Money Decisions

My son came home yesterday and informed me that he and his friends had decided they were going to start having a game night.  Each weekend they usually go somewhere like movies, out to eat or the game park just somewhere to hang out without parents.  Several of his friends have parents who are facing hard times – one owns a local store and business isn’t good and another parent has been laid off since last school year and another has been ordered to take mandatory unpaid vacation to keep from losing her job.

The kids made the plans on their own and made a schedule to be approved by the adults.  They are on a five week rotation so the parents will know when it is their turn to host the night.  This sounds much like adults deciding to dine with friends at home instead of eating out so I am proud that these kids made this choice. 

Hopefully, these kids will grow up to make the same types of wise financial decisions.

****Another subject entirely, my son has to take his test for All Academic Team today.  He is quite nervous so if you could send some positive thoughts his way I’m sure he will appreciate it.  Thanks***
