Back when my teenagers were growing up I constantly wanted them to understand how things worked in the real world! I do not recognize how parents are doing their children any favors when they protect them too much from the stresses of managing your finances and family life.
- It is rather hard to balance your family budget these afternoons when so many things are suddenly adjusting.
I had usually wanted my teenagers to have a unbelievable handle on responsible money practices, including managing their utility bills, and one of the most valuable parts of being a human these afternoons is dealing with the unlucky climate change, but the two of us have to use our central heating and cooling plan on a common basis to keep our indoor air conditions within reason. It can be hard to spend my savings off the energy bill when your heating and cooling plan is running each afternoon. This is why I tried to educate my teenagers on heating and cooling maintenance, repair, and control unit settings. I was trying to get them to understand that you can’t crank the control unit in either direction without consequences for your entire heating and cooling system. The a/c unit and forced air gas furnace will split down much sooner if you are constantly messing with the indoor air temperature control settings. I taught my teenagers these important skills from an early age.., however but now I regret it sporadically. In fact, they have become little heating and cooling Nazis. Every moment that I touch the control unit to raise the indoor air temperature up or down a few degrees both of the teenagers begin lecturing me on proper Heating, Ventilation, and A/C control settings.
