By Christy Wright There’s one thing this year, and every year, that most of us would love to have more of. No, not money. That would be nice too, but that’s not it. Time.

Dear Dave, My wife and I are not on the same page when it comes to money and our two teenage daughters. I think they should be learning the value of work and money, but she doesn’t want them to work. She regularly hands them spending money and buys them expensive gifts. I want our girls to have...
