My family were extremely poor, and we struggled after the WWII in England. I was taught the value of money, so all my life I have really been careful only to spend what is needed.
I am so thankful I learned this lesson early in life, because now I don’t have to worry that the money will run out, being retired.
If only parents could say ‘No’ to their children, and let them know the true value of money. There would be far less debt in this world.
