I read somewhere that 90% of our values are shaped by our environment, with 99% of that 90% shaped by our parents. So you know how the whiners keep pointing to their parents as the source of their misery? They do have a point to some extent, but once you get past a certain age, whining about your lot in life without doing anything to change it will no longer cut it. Suck it up and accept the hand you've been dealt with and then use that as your ground zero to create the life you want.
My financial education was very typical Pinoy, with some minor exceptions. My parents were not born into riches, had to work for a living but enjoyed some perks that they were always thankful and gracious with. They never really lectured us on money or talked about it in passing, unless it was my mom worrying out loud like clockwork on how she was going to come up with the cash to pay our tuition fee, the two mortgages on the house, car payments etc. etc. And although they never said anything, when it comes to money matters, these are what I picked up from my parents.
