Re: Credit talk to Daughter Worked!

Congrats to you and your daughter. I just added my son to my amex. Been talking to him about credit praying and hoping he is listening. He asks me several questions. So also hope he understands. We as parents dont want our children to be where we were. And learn the hard way about credit

Re: Credit talk to Daughter Worked!


I know. I never want my daughter to be where I was. I has and will take a few more years to be baddie free. My other daughter is 15. So she will be getting the talk in a couple of years also. Right now all she is interested in is being able to drive. LOL
