Kids and Money — January 15, 2009

Welcome to the first edition of Kids and Money 2009! There are a lot of posts (as a reader, do you like reading lots of material all at once, or do you want smaller “helpings?” This would entail going back to once-a-week publishing, which I’m okay with, as long as you, the READER, wants that), so pull up a chair and sit down for a while!

Tell me your viewing preferences in the Comments, please. Also, as a submitter, what would you rather have? Once a week, twice a month, or monthly?

That said, here goes.

Isaac Yassar presents Manage Your Anger posted at Isaac Yassar .com, saying, “Teaching kids with anger is not a good idea. If parents cannot manage their anger well, kids will be victims. Show them some example how to deal with anger. Manage your anger!”

Joe Manausa presents REAL ESTATE TRENDS WORTH WATCHING | Tallahassee Real Estate Blog posted at Tallahassee Real Estate Blog, saying, “The MLS is the only source of information that directly ties supply to demand, so I find that it is important to keep an eye on this set of information on a daily basis. The most important information is new listings, new sales, new failures, and new pendings (homes put under contract), and track these as an “average” or trend over time.”
Could you tell us more?

Hi, thanks for including my post “Manage Your Anger” in this carnival, I appreciate it. Answering your question, twice in a month is the best I think. If there are so many articles, it will be good if you categorize them, so it will be easier to look, not confusing.

Thanks, Isaac. That’s a great — yet simple — suggestion that I can probably follow through on!!! 🙂
