What so special about a bank account? It is that place that charges you more money if you run out of or have no money, right? Everybody has one.
What is so special is that yesterday my son opened a bank account. It is part of the requirements of his life at The Center. This way I will set him up for direct deposit of his paycheck and he can begin paying off his fines and clear his warrants.
Sometimes the only steps you can look for and appreciate are the baby steps. I'll take whatever I can get. Dad is happy and proud, I hope this is a start. (again)
