Growing up, my parents did their best to provide for me and my sisters. We ate home cooked meals more than we ate out. I had daily and Saturday morning chores – at least I recall that I had chores. I don't remember seeing them doing much, LOL.
Providing a comfortable home and safety for us, they really did a good job at providing. What they didn't do well though, I had to learn the hard way: manage finances. I don't recall ever sitting down and working a budget with them. Now, as father myself to our children, I'm conscious of giving them what I didn't have in that regard: a strong & personal financial educational experience.
For so many years, I had a negative, pessimistic, and scarcity mindset regarding finances. It was really a sore spot because I didn't really understand it and how staying on top of your finances is better than ignoring how slim the account is.
