Telling the Difference

A friend of mine commented that she really liked the Sundays post.  Which prompted me to go back and look at it again.

My favorite part is the end, where I told Oldest that he needs to start learning to tell the difference between someone wanting him to do something is good for them, versus something that is good for him.

It occurs to me that it is worth building on this idea with Oldest.  This is an important lesson to learn when dealing with salesmen of any type (especially the ones who want to sell you an extended warranty), when dealing with your personal finances, or when dealing with high-school peers.  I think I should create a curriculum for this.
