DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I know teenagers often rebel against their parents, but I admit I went overboard and have been a rebel ever since. I don’t know why I’m writing, but we have two children now, and I’m scared because I realize I don’t have any idea how to be a good father. — J.McF.

DEAR HELOISE: Please do not let other people make the same mistake we did. In June of 2010, we leased a new vehicle. With that came free satellite radio for three months. After the three months of free radio, the radio was automatically shut off. Since November of 2010 until December of 2013, we were billed $16 a month on our credit card.
