I heard it from my mother a million times when I was a little girl and especially when I became a teenager. "I am not made of money." That may have been the case but I wanted what I wanted when I wanted it. I just didn't get it then.  My mother taught me financial responsibility the hard way.  As Fab Moms it is important to teach our children financial responsibility and the value of money. It will pay off in the end. Needless to say, I did not get what I wanted when I wanted it from mom.  I had to turn my attention to dad :- )  I have been challenged to teach my 10 year old and 23 year old financial responsibility over the years and man what a trip that has been  My oldest daughter has graduated college and is now unearthing her own adult challenges and successes. As a parent we are always concerned and want the best for our children and wonder if we did all that we could to prepare them for "the real world".  While shopping with my girl's my youngest daughter asked her sister to buy her several toys she wanted.  My daughter responded " I am not made of money" and went on to explain financial responsibility to her younger sister. How about that... she was listening and she gets it! One down-One to go.
