I for the most part have always been very encouraged by information I recieve from Motley Fool, until today when I read your article influencing teen agers to get into debt and start a life of continuous digging. This is the type of dependancy our children will acquire when we teach them at an early age to spend what they don't have. Why not encourage our children to save and buy with what they have? Or how about teaching them some fundamentals about investing? This gives me the impression that Fool is attacking the younger generation for its own financial bliss and not for the best interest of todays future investors. There will be very limited investment in the future if the next generation or two has all debt and no money for investment. The same investements from the same type of people who have supported Motley Fool.
I am a subscriber to Fool Advisor and also considered joining Hidden Gems, but this makes it difficult for me to consider any longer - I feel misled.

P.S. After discussion with people whom have seen your article, they also agree this is the wrong direction.
