On Life Insurance Ugh Why

My husband and I both bought term life insurance policies when we had a kid. It makes me feel really good at adulting to know that my son will be financially okay (better off, even, from one gross perspective) if something terrible happens.

On How Much Allowance Money Should You Give Your Children?

@Erica Who says there are no consequences? I was expected to clean the bathrooms before I did anything fun on Saturday and if I didn't I got a talking-to. But it was disconnected from my allowance.

@Ester Bloom It is one of those words that seems like it should mean the opposite of what it does!
