You never believe what people are going to neglect to mention when you first discuss something with them. This was certainly something the two of us have dealt with as parents of more than two difficult children. It seems prefer all of our kids provide us half truth rather than being completely transparent and forthcoming with their details. This has been a challenge all throughout raising them. As adults, they continue to try our last nerve with their exclusion of crucial information. This was certainly the case when my oldest child asked us to cosign on a lake house for him, only for us to discover that the lake house was in need of immediate repairs. Apparently, my child had no idea that your lake house needs to have the indoor air temperature control. When he looked at the lake house he never bothered to ask the realtor about any form of air quality control, such as the furnace or air conditioning unit. As a result, the Heating & A/C plan was over 15 years aged and appeared as though it had never been professionally diagnosed in that entire time. When the two of us took a look at the furnace it was a block of rust. The air conditioning plan did not look much better; Unfortunately, the more the two of us looked around the more trouble the two of us found. The HVAC duct was in terrible condition and even the thermostat was disintegrating before our actually eyes. The final straw was realizing that there was no insulation contained in the attic. My child wanted us to co-sign on this lake house for him, even though he could not even afford the Heating & A/C upgrades let alone the entire structure.
