Raising smart successful children is tough...

We've been through a lot in the last 5 months. We've moved to a new city, the kids are attending a new school, and my husband a new job. AHHH!!!  It's been hectic to say the least.

Now that we are kind of settled I've just been trying to teach my children valuable lessons when I can. Lately I've felt the kids being too dependent on devices and not really wanting to help out around the house. I've felt very frustrated and just tired of yelling and repeating myself over and over and over again!!

My mom gave us a Dave Ramsey Financial Peace Jr. kit she got from work. She thought it was a financial game. It's something I wanted to do with the kids but since we were moving and going through everything the last 3 years I never really got around to it. We've moved 3 times in the past 3 YEARS!! We would see the box sitting around and the kids would say "I want to play that" and I'm like "yeah we'll get to that".

Cut to maybe a year …
