I am the mother or 2 teen girls(13 and 15), a pre-teen girl(12) and an 11 yr old girl. All 4 of them are A honor roll with out fail, excell at spots, never had any kind of trouble with the law or adults. All 4 also have personal checking accounts with no less than a thousand dollars each. They pay for thier own medical bills(braces,contacts,glasses,meds),cell phones,internet,laptops,as well as my 2 oldest have begun saving for college. They also fund thier own entertainment, movies,mall,club,clothes,concerts,weekends at the beach etc..
Having said all this, Im left to wonder WHY so many people say my daughters are to young to do this? My daughters are the only ones I know that do these things., They are more responsible than most adults. Any thoughts as to why people say rude things? I suspect jelousy because thoer own teen(older than mine)finds it impossible to save fifty cents.
