From Dr. Jane's Notebook

Speaking of Money

In the aftermath of December spending, it is not unusual for money to become a painful topic for discussion. Indeed, many family arguments are based on issues of spending and earning. As difficult as it sounds, it is possible to make financial discussions less painful. To this end, I offer the following suggestions...

Money can be a great source of anxiety in our family relationships, or it can be a carefully-considered resource. In these uncertain times, it is important to plan our finances, and not allow them to be a constant source of conflict. As with so many other problems, decisions about finances are best approached as a family.
