IslandFoolin, I think you're doing a great job. People like to assume that us youngin's have no idea whats going on sometimes, and that (fortunately) isn't always the case. That said, ageism does exist and you just got a swift shot to the tail end of it. Next time, just don't mention your age and it may help you get a bit more respect. That's what I've learned for the most part, anyway.

Next, I don't necessarily agree that you should cart your parents off to some financial planner. Sounds to me like you're doing a STAND UP job! I would only advise a financial planner if you didn't understand some aspect of the stock market and preferred someone who spent 24/7 working with it.

You've come here anytime you weren't sure, and the Fools have given you solid advice. So use it! And get those parents cooking for themselves, you don't want them to starve once you leave, do you?

Good luck IF,

-In
