Dear Money Doctor®, my Financial Advice is:
Throw a high fastball to the head
My story behind the advice is:
I needed a wake-up call and got one from my parents. I racked up credit card bills that I couldn’t pay off and approached my parents for help. What I received was a lecture that I’m an adult and responsible for my careless use of credit. They offered to help buy things that I really needed, like food and rent. I needed a wake-up call.
