Re: I had to have "the talk" with my 17 year old son

My dad does taxes on the side and gave me this talk way too late, haha.  I was 19 when I destroyed my credit and now, at 28, I have a kid of my own who I am DEFINITELY giving this talk to.  He already has a savings account and I told his dad we are NOT telling him how much is in it by the time he's old enough to start saving money.  We'll just plan to give him an allowance and he can put half in savings every week.

 

He's only four months old right now, so we'll see how that actually pans out. :smileylol:
