Talking to the Kids about Tightening the Budget with Jill Schlesinger

Wednesday, May 27th

"Family we have to tighten the budget" to a kid, that's probably worse than hearing mom and dad tell them to eat their vegatables.
Cutting things out of the budget is uncomfortable for all of us. But, with so many people losing their jobs or agreeing to take a pay cut, tightening the belt is a "must do" for many families.
