Was just reading this article about a musician called Tinchy Stryder who has been campaigning for youngsters to better understand their finances. I think this is a really great idea because a lot of kids have been brought up thinking that it's OK to have debt in order to get the things they want today. They just don't want to save up for the things that they want to buy. They would rather pay high interest rates by taking out computer financing with no credit check.
Was just surfing about on various forums and blogs are started to read about ways of making money online. I know that I'm terrible for staying focused but I thought that it might have been something that one of my older kids could do as a way of making a bit of extra money. It seems that basically what you need to do is create one of those free blogs at somewhere like Blogger, BlinkWeb or Weebly. You can also create article at HubPages and InfoBarrel where you place some ads. It doesn't cost any money at all.
I'm the sort of person that has a very short attention span. I tend to be all over the place and when I start a particular task, I suddenly think of something else and go off to do that. The result is that I end up with a whole load of partially finished jobs.
I guess one of the positive things about working from home is that my kids can learn from what I do. I try not to shield things from them. If things go wrong I will explain to them. Perhaps not straight away but later. This way I can teach them that things don't always go to plan and that you have to work hard in order to achieve things that you want.
I'm all for women's rights and all that but I really do feel that we are working too much trying to juggle home and work life. We just want it all. Is it worth it? Is it even what we want from life? I bet if most women were asked, they would say that secretly they would like to give up work. Or at the very least, just work part-time.
In my last "proper job" I was stressed out all the time. I kept having to work long hours dealing with people who were not exactly all that pleasant. I just felt really deflated and worthless. I wanted to dedicate more time to my husband and two kids but it's really been an uphill struggle.
I so desperately want my family to all be happy but nothing I seem to do makes things work out like that. I've always had an idea in my head as to how I wanted my life to turn out but somehow not much has worked out that way.
