I think you left a hint for us in your last line:

If you are persuasive enough they might let it grow; but as you will be gone, they could do what young people do and blow everything. I am a baby, novice Fool so there may be tons of things wrong with this concept. If there are I trust other Fools to shoot it full of holes.

Its my impression that concerns like this are precisely what TRUSTS are for. However, that's the extent of my knowledge on the subject. Any knowledgeable trust people out there to help out these guys who want to leave money to Grandkids but not see it blown on sports cars in the kids 20's?
