How about showing them a fake will that leaves all your stuff to charity? If you can keep a straight face, it might jolt them into behaving more responsibly.

Who knows? I may also use it all up paying medical bills, hopefully later on. I have done all I can, from sending Excel budgets for month and year, all made up for them. I give advice on jobs and how much they should be earning, backed up by websites devoted to this kind of info. I give advice on upkeep of their homes and how important an investment a house is. I give them investment advice. Yada yada.

I am speaking to the wall.

I spend my money for me as I wish, help out the girls when they get into financial binds and GK's. What is left, is left. I just hope the children do not land up on the corner of the street with hat in hand when I am gone.
