Well said. I did read Millionaire Next Door and gave it to my mother when I was done a couple of years ago. My mother is going to retire this year and is talking about how she can't afford to give my sister "economic life support" any more. But that doesn't stop her from matching my sister's loan repayments :-)

I think that as my sister gets older she's settling into the idea that she has to deal with her money issues. She's always been great at inspiring people to act, often on her behalf, and the hard thing about this is that she's going to have to deal with her money problems herself (unless she gets hitched to someone who wants to take her away from all that :-)
