Peki: And you assume there's still 500K left??? Funny. You apparently don't know how net worth works, as it's rarely in liquid cash form.


So you had the investment in Pets.com.  Congratulations for this.

What I believe is being said by you is that you do not see this from the two sides and instead from only one side of this and that side of this is the incorrect side.

Martian_Astronomer: FTFA: The survey also found 34 percent of parents have dipped into a child's piggy bank.

Here's the simplest way I can put it: One of the main reasons that you give a kid a piggy bank (or, when they get old enough, one of those teenager savings accounts,) is to teach them to be responsible with money, delay gratification, prioritize what they spend it on, etc. If that money can disappear at any time without warning, the kid is going to learn exactly the opposite lesson that you're trying to teach them: Spend all your money as soon as possible, because if you try to save it, mom and dad will just re-appropriate it anyway.

/ I mean, if you're really cynical about life and want to teach your kids not to trust the banking/finance industry, that'll probably work well, but...




Just like what happened in Cyprus. Broke government saw plenty of juicy savings accounts so it decided that it knew how to spend the money better than the owners of the accounts. Much like these parents are doing with their kids. Instead of controlling their spending and living on a budget, they take the easy way out and raid their kids accounts.

meow said the dog: So yes if you wish for stealing the money from the child of you then first you need to be the Fark.com poster who has the sex which is the unlikely thing but it is still the appropriate under this the situation.


That's right, if desired in order to steal money from your child, it is that hard to believe at first but there is a need to Fark.com poster to have sex, under such circumstances, it is still relevant.

LoneVVolf: Unless the kid is pulling a 9-5, the money came from the parents in better times anyway.


Actually it was my paper route and grass mowing money.  But the mortgage wasn't going to get paid without that money.

Yup... My mom took all the money out of my savings account. And it wasn't money she had given me.

But it was because we were flat broke after my dad left and she needed to feed us and keep the lights on. That's life, and I certainly don't blame her for the situation.
 
2013-05-08 10:20:56 PM

What Knot: Some might think it's ok to take money from your child's savings account because it doesn't "belong" to them, but by that logic, I can walk up to any kid on the street and steal their toys or candy or guns because, hey, f*ck off kid, you aren't legally entitled to own anything.

I agree that, under certain circumstances, desperate times call for desperate meaasures. I'm not suggesting a family should go hungry when there's money sitting in a child's savings account. I just don't think that's what typically happens. Too many parents over-spend, get into credit card debt, and then use the child's savings as a bailout.

I find that really unacceptable, and shameful.


Or the parent's could be like my dad and just be alcoholics or have some other fund draining habit that causes them to steal from their children.

My mom spent the "college fund" my aunt gave me on a pair of skis that were used once or twice, and a very expensive bicycle that was almost immediately stolen.  She said money wasn't important, so I don't know if having that savings would've really helped me with college (never got there, and so I do non-management retail), but I don't think that sort of thing was a priority for her.  She was always very concerned that we shouldn't look like 'hobos' to the members of our church.

I am sorry but I do not see the problem that has done the occurrencing with this because it is the money of the person and they can have the habit upon which is desired by they.  I am thinking you probably also would do the things which are viewed as the wastes of the money so why would you be the individual to place upon others judgment for what they do with the money of they?  Did you have the roof over the head of you?  That was the rental fee and perhaps also the HOA association of the owners of homes fees also.

My parents raided my banking account quite a few times while I was growing up. They sometimes said they would pay it back but they never did. It's not like a kid really needs money for anything so it isn't that big a deal. I just learned that my parents are bad with money and to ignore any financial wisdom they gave out (one piece was: interest rates are so low on student loans it's like free money so we used ours to buy a car!).

/thankful my dad snagged one of the last jobs in the world with a pension

SirVagTheTighty: PsiChick: rappy: I mean... think about all of the money you spend on your children. I don't see the issue with taking a little bit of the money you most likely put into their savings if you need it.

Hey, rappy: Stealing your gift back is still stealing. From  your own kids, no less.

/I have no doubt my bio dad would have done this if my mom wouldn't have castrated him.

Thats like saying you have slaves because you make your kids do the dishes or vacuum without paying them.  They are part of the family and should chip in, yes even financially.  Hell since my 12 year old got a job its not uncommon at all for us just to tell him to walk to the store and get something we need.  Not like its just us, I've seen my neighbor do the same.  I bet that kids spent like $800 in the last year for stuff for our bbq's.


If they have a job, that does change the line, but the line is still there--you wouldn't take money from his college account, right? And when his job ends, you're not going to ask him to pick up more groceries, right? Yeah, still a line--and if a kid doesn't have a job, that's theft.

What Knot: PsiChick: /I have no doubt my bio dad would have done this if my mom wouldn't have castrated him.

You had a shmuck of a dad, too, eh? I can relate. But did your mom really castrate him?

Man, I wish my mom had been that cool.


No, he knew better than to try. He's a chronic pain patient, which is supposedly why he's a shmuck, so my mom's pretty patient with him, but if he  had tried...yeah, she'dve handed him his ass.

Hey man, I'm not nuts enough to think that farkers have any respect for anybody's parenting abilities. I'm just pointing out that my mom will be well taken care when she reaches her twilight years because I think she's been a great mom (and grandma, for that matter). She's offered to pay the money back anyway, but I'd have to be one hell of a miser to actually take it from her.

Meh. I personally know parents who open credit cards and cell phone accounts in their childrens' names because their own credit is so bad. Good luck explaining to your 18 year old why he doesn't qualify for anything when he goes to get his/her first credit card, car, loan, house, etc.

So far I have not had to take any money from my kids savings accounts but if I ever do I will not have a bit of remorse about it.  I opened the accounts and gave them all the money that is in them.  If I decide that their long term interests are better served by something like taking money out for a family members medical emergency or for some housing emergency or other crisis I will do so without any guilt.

Why would this be the problem?  Do you think that the children of these do not reap the benefits upon which are needled and sewed by the credit card information and also they can just do the discharging of this through the identity theft claiming.  This is the easy fix and actually quite the good strategy because maybe perhaps the credit card companies should do the further background checkings.  So why would you do the blaming of the parents who are the innocent partiers here.

Russian Proverb.

A man decides he's tired of supporting Grandpa.  So he rounds up Grandpa and tells him that he's going to take him to the poor house.  And his son, he tells to go out to the barn and get a horse blanket to keep the old man on the way.  Son goes off and a long time follows before the son reappears with half a horses blanket.  When asked why half a blanket the son says, I saved the other half for you.

odinsposse: /thankful my dad snagged one of the last jobs in the world with a pension
//they would never make it if they actually had to save money


My take is that unless there is a mechanism to force people to save money, the world conspires to rid most of them of any excess cash.  Remembering you're competing with everyone else for rent and food.  Including the ones living on credit and saving nothing.  Those people make it hard for others to be wise with money.

SpdrJay: I didn't know this was a thing for other people....

But it's one of about five thousand reasons why I don't care that my parents are dead.


My mother forged my signature to remove money from an account set up with proceeds from my daddy's life insurance. Dementia and coercion were involved, but it sucks the same. Especially since the person the money was given to left a $4 million estate .  . to his niece, a person not related to my mother or to me. Dementia can eat medical waste foreskins.

2013-05-08 10:40:19 PM

meow said the dog: This is the issue upon which I am believing two sides of this should have the consideration as yes it might seem at the glance which would be the primary of these would be the thing to make judgment on the parents of these but then there is also the other side of this which does not have the problems and we cannot make conclusions of this until the two sides have obtained consideration.

The first side of this says listen it is not the good thing for the individual who is the parent to do the thefting from the child of they.  Listen unless you are the rich executive such as that upon which does the bank working then society does not have the improvement of the stealing by you.  And there is something that tells to me that the Koch brothers might be the individuals who would make the for the excellent pornography naming would not do the theft from the children of them although they might do this from the coffers of the children of the employees LAUGHTER OL.  No this is just the jesting I am doing so let me say however that many people would say OH BUT MEOW IS THIS THE WRONG THING FOR STEALING?  Well yes because it is one of the Amendments to the Old Testament which had the signing by Moses and Larry King.  LAUGHTER OL if you do not get this it is the jokings because Larry King is the older individual.

Now the other side of this says that is the money ever that upon which belongs to the child?  Listen to the things which cannot legally be done by the child such as getting the marriage and having the duty of the military and listening to the music which does not cause the annoyance to others and signing the contract.  OH THAT IS THE IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION OF THIS you might say and I will say to you that you are the correct individual.  The child is not of the legal age for doing the ownership of the bacon bank but also let me say to you that the parents are teaching the children the important lesson if they do the thefting from they and that lesson is do not be the p ...



In case you didn't get it, here's a translation.

Both sides of this, yes, it is on the other side of it, more importantly, if you are going is his right to make a decision on the parents, I could make more visible, there is nothing wrong is a question that you believe should be considered, and we have able to get from here to the conclusion that all adhere to.
Hear first hand is not a good thing for someone who is father to son Thefting them. You hear, except that rich executives of the company improved after stealing from you, not the bank work. Koch brothers, and may the financial resources of the child workers laugh their OL is done, has been named the best pornography told me that not one is not about the theft of his children, there is nothing. game, which I do, a lot of people will say, oh, but that's Cry is wrong to steal, but I just do not say? Well, yes, because it is one of the versions of the Old Testament, which includes Larry King and Moses signed. Since one of the oldest jokings Larry King, OL laughter is the case, you can not do this.
Well, on the one hand, he said that is where the money belongs to the children at that time already? As a couple, they have military duty when I hear that a child is not binding for other trouble occurs, listen to music, not signing a contract. Oh, I'm important to consider that will tell you that you are right there and you can say this. The child is not of legal age to make bank assets Bacon, but the main lesson is that I know that they do not Thefting, and his teachings, tell me that teaching children of parents without human parents idiots can not do for you to take away from them or retirement savings and leave for the elderly.
Well, I think it's really stupid kids are these two pages, must include, as one is not really that important. OH sorry kids, tooth fairy is held to say and you need to give money to other children, but if you lose your teeth in AGE, you will get the return value. Give this a few days, the kids, because it has a memory of the time is good for thyroid disease most of you probably take a child perhaps, for the big day, you remind children to produce there and forget it.
It seems when you want to steal money from your son, and you are the lowest in the first, but you have Fark.com poster, sex, in this case it is reasonable stability.

I'm plenty of fun. How do you think I got eight kids in the fist place? I just make my children a priority and put their needs first. If I don't need their money, why would I take it? I'm hoping that savings will help them get through college or tech school or something someday. I don't need to go party away my kids' money to feel good about myself. God granted me the title "Mother," and that makes me feel better than any silly party ever could.
