There is absolutely nothing wrong hanging out with friends if you are a parent, but careful not to overspend time with friends at the expense of your quality time with your kids. Helping family and friends financially is fulfilling, but let it not compromise your financial stability or stash of funds for a rainy day. Spending on friends and family is great, but lest it not compromise your self improvement through side business, extra educational development or hobby. No amount of advice or motivational speeches can ever prepare us for the curve balls life has in store for us. Of all the life lessons I’ve learnt in life, all the educational achievements attained, all the professional experience gained, personal successes and failures experienced. I have come to the realization that nothing in the world is for certain, the only guarantees in life are Life and Death.
