Thanks to all who replied with advice and with the Goog/Schwab links. I have gone over it all.

I will use all this when I try my next sell-session on investing. It's good to perhaps not emphasize the emergency-fund aspect, you're right, I don't want it to be looked at that way, so great advice on that.

I will also try the matching idea. I will try to get others involved in it as well.

And I did not think about having him focus on first establishing an emergency fund on its own. He has savings, but needs some of that I believe for college.

I wish he had started years ago, when he was very young, but that time is gone.

Thanks again for the info...
