Give Your Child an Early Inheritance by Al Doyle
Don't wait until you're in the grave to give the kids something of real value. I'm not talking about imitating the biblical father who handed over a large sum to his prodigal son. In some cases, this early inheritance can cost less than $100 per child.
How can a parent do this? Buy a child a gun Â and take the time to teach how to use it responsibly and safely. When the child turns 18 (rifles and shotguns) or 21 (handguns), it becomes their personal property. There are several reasons for parents to take a proactive role in training kids in this vital skill.
Excellent advice, especially in these increasingly troubled times. Go read the whole thing.
