These days, it's hard not to think about money. It seems like everything is getting more and more expensive, like gas, groceries, and travel. We try to teach our children the value of a dollar, and we try to instill in them the ideal that money is to be spent wisely and saved whenever possible. As things become more expensive and some budgets begin to tighten, this becomes even more important. In spite of this, we need to remember that some things come without a price tag. Five Moms is free, our support is free, and talking to your children is free. There are some things that are simply priceless. Think about this: Teenagers whose parents talk to them on a regular basis about the dangers of drug use are 42 percent less likely to use drugs than those whose parents don't. Talk with your children today and make sure they know about the safe ways to use medicines and the dangers of cough medicine abuse.
