A listener asked me how to prioritize loans from their parents. I am not a fan of borrowing money from family. I'd hate to owe money to my parents. Paying that off would be a major priority for me. But if you are still going to do it, remember that when you borrow money from family, you have to pay a reasonable interest rate and it is a good idea to have written terms. We get into more details about borrowing money from family in this episode but don't become debt numb just because you are offered money at a low interest rate.
