Climb grade and I was OK to ask you my question -- I'm glad you called come hell.
Well we really are looking forward -- -- -- -- because we're so close to the situation that.
We have an intelligent.
Beautiful talented guy work.
Who graduate -- bodies from a -- intriguing happier while and she graduated out of writing and -- her position on Monday cool and it's.
Good job in today's economy we're thrilled.
The problem is -- the last semester at school.
She needed some money to.
So she could focus on Larry King credit and not worry about paying job for bill we supported her -- paying her rent and grocery books.
Tuition all patched up and this morning it was just you know extra it was transitional.
Expenses to get out of her at least.
Just get injured a Condo killing it clear what the longer we -- you know we keep your money we felt she needed.
To return that to us because she's mismanaged money before.
We made it clear that catchy it it had collapsed through January.
And acre ranch in Chile a share for each and well we ecology letters -- sure four and and that doesn't include -- and you know other expansions and so my question is do we -- at 500 dollars rent.
And check -- on that point 500 dollar loan board and we say no he mismanaged it we don't want enable her.
He's in the first -- out of college.
Yes -- Com we want to help they don't want -- to be enabling because we've always manage your money while we've never been -- -- -- watched that somehow it well.
She's obviously a very.
Intelligent girl but that the issues of common sense senator yet.
And she didn't major in finance which my husband pointed out.
My you'll have to major in finance -- -- balanced checkbook he got just got to get -- the sixth grade.
It's but but you know she's come out.
On the subject of money she's one of those book Smart people who had never gotten the money thing right so.
Well -- I don't think you're enabling but to keep you from enabling we've got to go to the source of the actual problem.
And the problem is not that she's irresponsible the problem is not that she's -- kind of do -- she's obviously a bright kid.
And she's a good kid I mean she knows how to be responsible or she would -- -- go on three and a half years.
You don't mind that not knowing how to be responsible it's this issue of money that trip and -- up.
And so I don't think it's as much lack of want to as it is lack of know how it's -- like she wrecked her car.
So -- her keys to another car she ran that one in the ditch.
And now you're going wells and enabling to give -- another car.
You're right yeah I kinda is but more importantly we need teacher -- And you know what I would say is -- if I were in your shoes what would I do and I've got kids the same age.
I probably would give her the other 500 dollars and I would -- alone I don't believe and allowing parents money.
It's only five it's only toward 500 are not teaching your responsibility -- and -- -- the whole lump under one condition.
That she finishes financial -- diversity.
Don't -- a class learns how to handle money.
Let's teach her how to handle money then if she screws up it's their responsibility.
And I'm a letter sit there in her mess -- sweat.
But I'll give her 500 I'll wave alone and but she has to agree to go to class.
And graduate from the class and then the loan is -- and so you have to go -- every night for.
You know once a week for thirteen weeks attend the actual class and and I'll give you the class to put her through that's my gift.
Some car that's so that's great kid can't listen.

Art sound so when did you she can't drive so we need to put her driver's -- Yeah that -- can't and then we'll get her car and hopefully and -- and then she wrecks that.
She's on our own.
What do you think I just didn't -- -- -- to think she will keep coming back.
You don't wanna you wanna break the cycle here but with the debt and the BM behind at all accounts of not really the problem.
It's more like the the it's it's it's more like the some don't.
The problem is the kid honestly -- our panel months.
Even though she's very bright then translated into this area of her life yet and I can help -- that it's what I do.
I am on moral pick up and we'll get are signed up -- go to class -- graduate mom -- the and that way of the loan and give -- -- 500 bucks let's put.
