Pam's Picks: Angry Kids, Angry Birds & a Carnival

There was a wide variety of articles circulating the web this week to wind down 2011.  Here are some that I really enjoyed reading.

My 15 year old sent me a link to this article from Keith Wagstaff at which listed tweets from angry entitled kids.  My son told me that I should "write an article about the value of money education or you end up with kids like these."  He has a good point.

My two youngest kids, ages 8 and 11, love the Angry Birds game and have a good time laughing at how terrible I am at the game. It definitely caught my eye to see Linsey at Wisebread write about the things she has learned from Angry Birds.

And...drumroll please...

I was listed in my first Carnival of Personal Finance which was hosted this week by Money Cactus.  He pulled together a fabulous collection of personal finance articles and tied it into his trip to Australia.  Very creative!  Thanks so much for including MoneyTrail in the list.

  1. I'm laughing so hard at the angry tweets from the entitled kids. LOL!

  2. Wasn't that just hysterical? I love the fact that my 15 year old thought it was over the top too!
