Dr. Wallace: I’ll be attending college in September. I’d like to have a credit card to use, instead of having cash. My dad likes the idea, but my mother hates credit cards. She thinks they get a lot of people in trouble. Your comments, please.


Ashley: Credit cards are very useful tools. They have never caused anyone any kind of problem.

The problem, if the card is not properly administered, lies with the person who owns the card.

I believe you should have a credit card, provided that you obey all the rules set by your parents.

Besides being convenient, they can be useful in learning how to control the use of money. For instance, charging the maximum and paying the minimum monthly fee can be catastrophic! Most of your payment then goes to interest, and that’s like putting a match to your money!
