Parenting…what’s at stake?

“Most parents can’t give their children a lavish inheritance, but every parent will leave a personal legacy. With the excess that surrounds most Americans, a lot of families get sidetracked from what really matters. We become so preoccupied with giving kids an inheritance that we forget the significance of leaving a legacy. Sometimes I just have to be reminded that what I give to my children and what I do for my children is not as important as what I leave in them. Isn’t it interesting how “stuff” can distract us from what is really valuable and how quickly we can get confused about what it means to be rich?”
