All parents want to support their children.

Of course, when they grow up and fly the coop, they can't always help them out of every pickle.

But every so often, when their children find themselves in a bad place or are struggling financially or emotionally, most parents will help their children out without a second thought.

Our day-to-day existence consists of making a myriad of minor decisions.

"Should I do cardio or focus on weightlifting this week?"

"I love this holiday Merino wool sweater that's on sale but do I need it?"

We don't even think about some of the daily choices we make because most are inconsequential.
