Another good article by Ben Stein and I stole it and made a copy for when the original goes
away.

The father sounds quite a bit like me but was more successful in accumulating wealth.
The mother sounds exactly opposite Helen. Helen's starting to see the end result of
her work time now and is more pragmatic than ever before.

I copied the whole article but the last part was what's good. Here's a link to the last
part:

Good advice for sure. We've been fortunate that we have put aside a good deal of money (percentage wise), over the years. I think I was a good influence on Tracy early on and helped her develop some sence of frugality and a desire to save. I suspect if I were a spend thrift at the onset we would have nothing saved for retirement right now.She would have eagerly been OK with the bigger house and fancier cars,etc. We still probably spend a little more than we should but the 15% each from our paychecks continue to be invested biweekly without fail.
