Re: car buying

God I've been here a long time. I remember you buying that Accord and going out with (and then dumping) a woman who looked down her nose at it because she usually went out with guys who drove BMWs.

Re: Child labor at age 14

After mch discussion over the weekend, we have decided he is too young to work there this year. It is something we may discuss again next year, but for now we both feel like he will be better off to wait until he is 16.

He will be allowed [more]

Re: asking for a friend

That make sense?

Yeah I understood the first time. Regardless, I won't bring it up again. It wasn't worth it.

I decided to take a more passive (possible aggressive too, but whatevs) approach to it. There are times when she [more]

Re: car buying

When I bought my new Accord, I was looking at used cars, but they really did want more for the used cars, and they were less willing to negotiate price.



This is very true.

In 2003 I was looking for a 1-2 year used [more]

Re: Child labor at age 14

From what you've written, this could be very tough. You're pretty blase about his grandparents paying for everything and it's likely that attitude gets passed to him


I say that here because we are far removed from my real life. [more]

Re: Child labor at age 14

What about insurance, gas, and general maintenance expenses for that car? I'd think he would be responsible for that.

He will pay all expenses related to him owning a car. We have started having the discussions on what that would [more]

Which job does Chud want to do now?

Honestly, both. He likes the idea of fast food because it is what his friends talk about doing. But he has "worked" at the paving company in summers past, for very little pay and almost no [more]

Re: Child labor at age 14

He will not be responsible for a lot of the normal expenses people worry about, such as a first car, or college expenses. His grandparents have that taken care of for all the grandkids.

I do not have an actual net worth figure on them, but [more]

Re: Child labor at age 14

I wasn't going to touch this thread at all, because I am still kidless, but I agree that you shouldn't dismiss his access to his money out-of-hand. What if he wants to use it to start his own business? Kids younger than him are doing that these [more]

Re: Signs of splitting up

I've noticed the exact same trend, but on several different levels. Every time I read a "My life is so blessed" post, I picture them curled up in a dark closet, crying and posting to Facebook on their [more]

Re: Child labor at age 14

The more I think about it, the more comfortable I get with the kid making his own money choices with a lot of guidance from us.

Thanks for that. Sorry I was so quick to dismiss the idea.

Re: Child labor at age 14

We will definitely incorporate lessons in saving, investing, etc into this, but he will not have access to this much money. It would only be a summer job, but we're talking nearly 5 figures here. Simply not gonna happen at this age. [more]
