Today we discussed how we earn money, why it's important, and established the differences between using debit/credit on our bank cards. We also learned about good/bad debt and credit.

They need to explain each detail and how they do things going down the good (get a degree, establish a bank account, build credit..etc) path and the bad (fall behind on bills, get in debt, low credit, how will they take care of it?) path.
