It’s officially my one year blogging anniversary over here at Chief Mom Officer, and boy has it been a wild ride!

When I put out a call on Twitter and the Rockstar Finance Forums a month or so ago asking what folks want to know about kids and money, I got some tremendous responses. Interestingly several were around kids and cell phones – both Slow Dad  and The Lady In Black (from the site of the same name) wanted to know about kids and cell phones.

A lot of folks are very angry about the Equifax data breach. Honestly, you would think by now we would be somewhat numb to our data being stolen – what with the Anthem data breach impacting 79 million people and the Target one affecting 41 million customers a few years back. But this one surpasses them both, at 143 million. If you only heard about the breach but can’t remember the ...
