That's why he doesn't want them to find out that he actually is putting most of his salary into investments. If they knew he had a decent salary they would ask him to pay rent, and he doesn't want to do that, because then he couldn't save as much money."

I send Mom and Dad email confirmations from Chase, and AX when I pay online. I show then receipts when I pay the car and secured loan with Sunwest.

I let Dad know when I buy and sell at Schwab.

I put 6% of my pay into a Roth 401k.
