My parents were great with money, but until recently, I have made a lot of financial mistakes. My parents didn't talk to me about money either. I wish they would have. Like the OP, I don't blame them for my mistakes, but it would have been nice to understand how they managed their money. I have some issues with how my parents attitude toward money also. For example, I took the bus to school, but a few times my parents would drive me to and from school for an activity. My dad would always complain about the gas money I was costing them. Once he picked me up from school when I was really sick, and he had a fit. Again, he complained about the gas money. He was wrong, but I should have let it go a long time before I did. I think this is where forgiveness is important. If I had forgiven him sooner, I wouldn't have let my hurt, anger, and resentment drive my behavior for so long.Things are better for me now, and I am much more responsible with money. I called my mom last night to tell her that my credit score was perfect. She asked me what a credit score is. Her house was paid off decades ago, she paid cash for her last few cars, and has never, ever carried a credit card balance. She doesn't care what her credit score is. However, we did talk about her getting a free credit report just to be safe.-Leia
