Parenting parenting parenting. What about the children today? How are they growing up? A good friend of mine told me recently this story. “You know, every time I go into the house the kids are playing video games. The television is always on. And they are only 3 and 5 years old. I’ve tried on many occasions to get them to read age-appropriate books and you know what my daughter says? She boldly states that her children are boys and they don’t have to read.”

A friend of mine received a call the other day from his 34 year old daughter, Renai. She was in tears when she revealed, “My mortgage payment and car payment are due and we don’t have any money. Our credit cards are maxed out. Can you help out?”

This wasn’t the first time he got a call of desperation over money. Before she had children, her high school-sweetheart now husband, Ray, and she danced a variety of tangos, fox trots, jives and the twist with credit cards. The good news – they managed to buy a house. The bad news – the price was too high.

The reluctance of governments to tamper with credit card interest rates or merchant fees symbolizes the silent omnipotence of banks and financial institutions in the credit society. To even talk about it is considered blasphemous by today’s highest priests of finance and commerce.
