Hi Rene:

 I’m hoping you can help me with something. I am DYING for a cell phone. I know which one I want. It’s about 80 bucks, but I only have a few dollars in my bank account. I really want my parents to buy it for me but I’m not sure how to convince them.

I’m 10-years-old and in the fourth grade and I get good grades.  Can you help? What should I tell them?


Ready and Waiting


Dear R and W:

Thanks for writing in. I think this might be easier than you think, though it will require a little bit of work on your part. Keep watching and good luck!
