    Yep they always ask me for my opinion I told them and they are like IDK so I end up telling do what you think is right but I would do the way I told you. A few days after they come back with their tale between the legs you were right dad. If they don't like my answer when they are asking for permission for something, they always come back with but why, I'm like one they you will understand.

    Experience of making mistakes leads to wisdom. We go through our own mistakes to learn our own wisdom.

    2500 was my limit when your kids learn to cut the grass # not smoke it, plus it gives them negotiating skills they will use for the rest of their Life, rather than Gimme Gimme I want !
    My mom said you want it? You maintain it ! That begun my career as a Nascar Mechanic....

    That right there is the reason why I am looking for a car for them.I don't think so but if they smoke it , what do you want me to do, my concern is good manners, good grades, hard workers, and helpful around the house and they have all of the above. $2500 you could buy a car like 10 years ago maybe 5, with that amount now all you can get is crap metal and mechanical headache. Highschool kids and at the same time part-time job, that mean not a lot a money so why would I want my kids to have a headache when I can get something more reliable that isn't going to break every other day. I am not asking here how to raise my kids or how much should I spend on buying them a car.

    Watch out for the devil's lettuce!
    My very first vehicle was a 1980 F100 that I had to rebuild the straight 6 to make road worthy. Dad and I were on the same page for my first vehicle, picked up a nice looking old truck that needed work.
    Oh how the times have changed.
