I had to take #3 to the eye doctor today and while we were waiting to get her glasses fixed, I started reading this article in Reader’s Digest
In it he talks about using his neighbor’s internet (not password protected) and reading his neighbor’s paper before he gets up. Now I am all for saving money and spending what I do spend wisely, but isn’t this stealing? Is this really what we want to teach our children. Don’t pay for internet, use the neighbors… Don’t buy a paper, read the neighbors and then take it back…
I admit I didn’t read all the article at the time because we were only there a few minutes. And yes, I was reading the magazine for free, though I am sure my eye doctor adds the cost of the subscriptions into his fees. He seems like a good business man.
I want my children to use what we have wisely, save money, purchase only what we need, and save wants for special occasions. I don’t want to teach them that its okay to take what is not theirs.
Maybe it’s just me.
