I'd probably go with in-his-name for first 10-12 years, then pay his expenses from that account, and set aside the same $ in your own name in a separate account.

thanks for the response. i want to make sure i understand the comment you made above...

so potentially use a regular trading account in childs name for the first 10-12 years of my 15-17 year time horizon and then... by pay his expenses are referring to the cap gains and dividend taxes?? because he wouldn't start college for probably another 3-5 years. so after 10-12 years transfer the money to an account in my name??

i think i might be misunderstanding your comment so if you wouldn't mind expanding on it for me that would be greatly appreciated!

thanks
michael
