parents are repaid money they lend to their children In my experience and that of 97 percent of my friends and acquain parents of today are not re paid You missed the sad point of the letter that the children are not dis honest or bad they are finan cially irresponsible Young people starting out today want everything they never want to wait The terms budget and save are meaning less to them Borrowing money to buy a computer and Christmas pre sents is typical of their mentality We were brought up to see food shelter and basic clothing as the only essentials Today young people believe that television sets comput ers answering machines pagers CDs videos microwaves are required items Their credit cards are maxed out and they need co signers on loans but they contin ue to buy buy buy Advice from parents is unwel come They only want gifts or If parents refuse they are considered selfish You have every thing lots of money is the lament I have learned to respond I didnt have everything at your age I have acquired my possessions or money through years of work ing and saving Try it HAPPILY SELFISH PARENT HAYWARD CALIF DEAR HAPPILY SELFISH PARENT You said that you brougjitup
