Gee, Andrea, that's how my parents attempted to inform me about the birds and bees. I found a couple of books on my desk when I was a kid. Of course, it was much too late.

LOL! Yes, I know it sounds pathetic, but you don't know my Dad. The chances of him listening to investment advice from me are nearly zero. He barely listens to my Mom (or anyone else for that matter).

I think the psychological/behavioral aspects of this will be more difficult than the financial aspects.
