You don’t have to look too far to find examples of young people making poor financial choices such as plunging into debt with a car loan. However, a small choice by one of my sons brightened my day.
He received a $25 movie theatre card for his birthday. Those who give bad advice about found money might suggest a mini-splurge. Perhaps he could go to a movie and buy enough popcorn and chocolate to wipe out the card in one evening.
Instead, he noted that movies cost only $4.25 on Tuesdays, and he can see almost six movies with his card as long as he eats before going. Bravo! A great many adults would do well to show this kind of financial restraint.
