Howdy Dan,

How to get a 13 yr old interested in investing? Geesh ... can't ya come up with any more challenging question <g>?

Ain't it obvious ... Investing, or essentially anything else don't stand a chance in a teenage worldview ... So why even try to oppose nature ... we wolves know something about that <smile> ...

So why not use his natural instincts for his own good, even though he might not be aware of it at the moment <lupine grin> ? ... Why not make some small percentage of any "profits" available to him for whatever (OK, maybe almost anything <g>) he chooses to spend it on. Even a hormonally jacked up teen mind might benefit from connecting what he wants to profits to learning how to invest ... Otherwise its just more time he is being "required to wastes" for some abstract adultish stuff that probably means diddly to him.

Take care,
