Getting free from debt is not just for us; it's also for our children, and our children's children. Debt can be a generational curse!
When parents are in debt, it usually trickles down to the children. Our children more times than none emulate what the grown ups around them do. If we don't want our children in financial bondage tomorrow, we have to do all that we can do to get out of it TODAY!!
It is our responsibility as parents to teach our children how to handle their money. The best training for our children is for them to develop and implement good money management skills early in life. If we are going to point our kids in the right direction as it relates to money, we must first learn how to apply those directions in our own lives. As parents, we must realize that our attitudes and ways of spending money greatly influences our children.
When I was younger no one taught me how to handle money, so when I became an adult I didn't have a CLUE!! And I can't blame it on anyone, because I'm sure my parents didn't have a clue, and their parents probably didn't have a clue either. So you see how this can become a generational thing?? Let's be the generation that breaks the curse!!
I have faith in you!! I know you can do this!! We'll do it together!!
