    Hmm..don't think much of the article. It perpetrates that money is the ultimate benchmark of success. I ask - at the expense of what? Personal relationships, respect for others, respect for social 'rules'? I believe we can teach our children to be successful holistically.

    Seriously, this type of article gives parents permission to allow their kid to be 'naughty' - or even flaunt it as a precursor to financial success.

    I have good kids - are they destined to be poor/less successful? I doubt it - they are good because I have taught them well and instilled sound values - and it has been bloody hard work - and I will take full credit for it!

    The same can't be said about my brother. Love him, but certainly the black sheep of the family.
