I now know the people living around me are honest after reading a post about it. The person who lent the air pods back to the original owner lives in an era where the property is not cared for by anyone. He returns these expensive things in a very positive way; I really appreciate it. I am guiding my children towards honesty and also read here https://supportpay.com/child-support-and-college-expenses-2/ about how I should support them in every matter of life to improve their lifestyle.
