1st quarter results for helping the kids budget

April 10th, 2009 at 01:54 am

I am very pleased with the 1st quarter results from helping the kids with their budget.

SIL's credit score jumped 60 points, DD1s- just under 30. They have incurred ZERO new debt, have paid off three collections and with their taxes, will pay me backin full and still have $2500 to work with.

Best of all, they have learned new habits and have not felt deprived. They are entering their busy season for their side businesses- DJing and Photography...and so they will have ample extra income to get them even farther ahead over the next several months.

What was entirely BLEAK in January, is now looking extremely successful for them. In january, they were close to having utilities shut off and next eviction...and now they are caught up and ready to start saving for a home.


In other good news, DD3's whole persona has changed the last couple of weeks. She is spending time with us and talking...and the anger seems to be gone. We are still far from perfect, but this is much better than it was!

We dont have plans for Easter..rather, we are having a birthday party for GS and nana (who are both in California until next week) on the 18th and will do a big easter egg hunt and family get-together then. Easter will be something low key with the hub, DD3 and me. Which will work nicely.

Looking forward to the weekend...and feeling mighty blessed.

    glad to hear everything is going well with DD3. my little sister has gone to live with our grandparents originally for 6 months, but they cant find a school for her in their area so she is coming back in two weeks now. hopefully she has a bit of a different attitude - she was angry, talked back, disrespectful etc as well. *sigh*

    Glad to hear it is all shaping up on all fronts - finances for the kids, interpersonal with DD. Certainly the time for us to remember our blessings. Happy Easter.

    I am glad that teaching, preaching and helping can work for other people. Most people I have tried to help are so hardheaded that I have mostly given up completely.
