Please go online and play this game. It is sponsored by Urban Ministries of Durham. The game is set up so that you have to pick a job available, apply for it and if you get it you have to live on that minimum amount of money each month. The problem is that real life situations come up and you must make decisions on what to do with the little money that you have.
I saw this game advertised on CNN this morning and I played it. It is a real eye opener. Go to this link to play Spent.
I would recommend that parents let their pre-teens and teenagers play this game. It is a real eye opener.
