Well...the son won't appreciate it, and will likely p..s it away. While the daughter doesn't need it, and giving it to her would antagonize the son. - Wyomingtim

That IS the essence of it right there.

How about skipping a generation and leaving it all in trust for the grandkids?

Frankly I never considered that except indirectly though my daughter. I have somewhat of an irrational aversion to trusts, too complicated or subject to revisions in law, but I will give that some serious thought.
