Avoiding Temptation

We understand that your baby's wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event (hopefully), and that you want it to be perfect. We can't stress, however, how important it is to be realistic about how much you can afford to spend to make those dreams come true.

Some families have no problem plunking down $20,000 or $25,000 for a wedding. Most of us, however, have to do some serious thinking and planning before we hand over that kind of money.

Limits are specific behavior boundaries for each child: "Annie cannot cross the street without a grown-up," and "Sherry must have the car back by 9:00 each night."

Times have changed, though, and pensions are, for the most part, a thing of the past.

My Son Doesn't Want to Go to College: What Can I Do?

No College No Problem

We have a fool-proof one, and we call it the Alphabet Toss. The ingredients are: enough consonants and vowels to make dozens of words, a sprinkle of luck, and a generous supply of spelling skills.

As song writers Buddy DeSylva, Lew Brown, and Ray Henderson once said, the best things in life may be free—but most things cost money. Buying toys and candy, going to the movies, and renting video tapes all cost money.
