@1QueenLight: An inheritance is a burden when children aren’t adequately prepared and trusts, etc are not set up + run properly.

@awonda: Inherited wealth isn’t bad as long as there is a trust and structure behind it. Also there is a leg up that it gives your kids to follow their dreams and do the same for the next generation. I know you probably have read about the Rockefellers of NY. Just be mindful as you draw Down when old to plan for sickness in old age because that i know for a fact is one of the reasons people in this age bracket get broke. In the US we have the health insurance (HSA) you can fund and also invest that can take care of this for you because the cost is astronomical.

abisolaking: Parenting is till the end, education is basic human right! Do because you sent them to school that’s it?? That’s all??

toiyoabasi1: Some people will làment here because they think education means Nursery to university and ASUU. These children will definitely make money. Jason and Mary are two of the most smartest people. So please don’t worry about their kids, they’re smart enough to make billions. Worry for yourself o. These parents teach their children viable skills and serious money education. They didn’t also say they won’t leave them the companies. They said they won’t save money and leave for kids to inherit. Jason without any rich parents made money in his youth. Trust me the kids will outdo them. Parents connection, education, skills, exposure etc. Don’t worry for these kids. Worry for yourself and your own children because if care is not taken, they may grow up to establish companies and employ some people crying here.
