Following an earlier article on why I will never tell my kids that we have some money,I thought I'd expand a little more on the main reason why I believe, think and feel why I will never tell my kids we have some money.
The main reason is that we want them to find their own way in the world, without thinking/feeling that they don't have to.

It is very important to find or build and engaging in things that are meaningful to you, because when it's meaningful, you'd live a richer and significant life.
And that's what I want my kids to have.
Yes, I want them to be very useful in the world, I want them to be very rich but I want them to achieve their riches and stuff and at the same time, be fulfilled because they do what is meaningful.
