Man tried to sell baby for home improvements... financial planning shows a better way!

Man tried to sell baby for home improvements... financial planning shows a better way!

Hi! You've got to read this CNN story about a father who decided he wanted to sell his infant daughter to raise money for home renovations.

What's the world coming to?

Read this and decide...

CNN.com - Man tried to sell baby for home improvements, police say - Apr 22, 2006: "Man tried to sell baby for home improvements, police say

APPLETON, Wisconsin (AP) -- A man raising his 18-month-old daughter alone tried to sell the little girl for $7,000 so he could make improvements to his house, police said Friday."


If you're back after reading that disturbing piece, you'll be pleased to know that most people are able to harness basic financial planning principles like spending less than they earn and saving for what they want, instead of adopting (reverse pun intended) that unnatural behaving father's actions!

Well, it is distressing that besides not being able to harness basic financial planning principles, some people don’t even seem to have their priorities in the correct order! That is why Danny Vu, the father, still doesn’t see anything wrong with what he has done!
