What on earth would the government teach people about money. The "right" thing to do changes. Traditionally, buying a home was a great investment. When the market was on the rise, and people could pay little on a balloon note, the wise economic decision was to purchase the biggest house you could afford with little down. Interest is tax deductible. People made millions. Of course that led to overvaluing homes and a big crash.

Traditionally, the stock market, even considering The Great Depression, has been a good investment, earning historically 10% per year. This may no longer be true.

Traditionally, higher education has been the wisest investment that someone can make. Now education has been made accessible to all, that is not necessarily true.

Dave Ramsey says live like a pauper now so you can live like a king later. Media mogul Ted Turner says that you can no longer measure the wealth of a man by his net worth, but by his line of credit. Who is really right and who is going to teach our children?

"Bottom line. Parents need the government to do what they do not have thr time to do. Single parents... Even two parent house holds don't have the time to teach their kids anything other than having kids makes you poorer. "

Really? Parents have no time to teach love, respect, self worth, responsibility, compassion, morals, values ???? That's a cop out, like almost every wood that comes from your lips. Instead of looking for excuses try looking for opportunities. You're so hung up in the Poor Me syndrome you hold yourself back. Not your parents, not your employer and surely not the government. You are your own worst enemy. Our society might be such that parents struggle to make ends meet but everything I mentioned is FREE and comes from the heart. I don't buy the "I don't have time " BS .People MAKE time to do what's important to them, it really is that simple. If you don't have your priorities in our that isn't the governments job.

Not one person who waste their time posting on these forums, least of all on the political forums, knows much about anything and or are as wealthy as they claim. If you were, you wouldn't waste time on the forums, you would be earning more money.

Bottom line. Parents need the government to do what they do not have thr time to do. Single parents... Even two parent house holds don't have the time to teach their kids anything other than having kids makes you poorer.

Yeah, that's totally me. I support making life difficult. You should really stop trying to pretend that you know anything about anything. Everyone here has already figured out that you don't know shit. What's taking you so long to come to the same conclusion?

Anyone who supports making life harder for their countrymen, and dismisses their suffering and in the same breath willfully would prevent the system from providing guidance to their kids... Guidance that they either cannot or will not provide... Lives a charmed and peachy easy life or sadly are trapped in a case of Stockholm syndrum where by you identify with those that made your life so horrid.

LOL. You don't know a damn thing about me. Luckily for you, I have no desire to put my life on full display for all to read. My upbringing was better than most, but it certainly wasn't just given to me and my mom worked multiple jobs at one time to give me as many advantages as possible. The fact that you would even attempt to conclude that my life has been peaches and cream is laughable and only further exemplifies how ignorant you are. But hey, go ahead and keep talking about things that you really don't know about. Hasn't stopped you before.

Bold statements from one with time to teach their kids. What of the mother who works from 4 am to 8 at night six or seven days a week?

That is only fourteen hours... A full time job plus a part time. There are some parents working that and they have no time to teach their kids anything.

So until all employers of any quality of job begin to provide a wage and benefits which allow a single parent to provide for their kids... At the least 3/4 of all expenses for the kids... The governmet will have to be the teacher... Because all their parents can teach is that as an adult, your life is hell and you have nothing to look forward to.

This is why inner cities have the gang violence that they do. The schools can't do everything, but they are going to have to do more than you would like... Because unlike your easy life, most parents must work for next to no wages.

That's why I told my boys you got a choice. You can pay a couple bucks for rubbers or pay child support for the next twenty years.

So far they've listened.

1. Feds should have nothing to do with it.

2. Many states are incapable of managing their own budgets but you want them to legislate to individuals how to manage their own? Yeah, ok.

3. Being a poor manager of your finances hardly disqualifies a person from being an all around competent parent. If a mother can lose custody of her child for being financially unstable, then what happens to a financially unstable family? Does the gov't come in and seize their children?

4a. I'll teach my kids how to save properly on my own, don't need schools trying to do it for me.

4b. Kids only spend about 1/6 of their time in school each year once you account for evenings, weekends, holidays and summer break. Any habitual "lesson" learned in school must be reinforced at home in order for it to stick. You can teach a kid how to do math or historical dates and events and have it stick, but things like manners, time management, budgeting, etc are all worthless endeavors for schools to try and teach a kid if they aren't being held to the same standards outside of school. Kids will absorb what they need to absorb in order to pass, but will likely have no clue how to actually apply it in life.

Quit relying on the gov't to tell people how to live their lives. Talk about the blind leading the blind.
