Children's Inheritance

According to today's Herald Nigella Lawson is the latest of the super rich to disinherit her children believing that this will save them from a life without direction. "I am determined that my children should have no financial security," said Nigella, "It ruins people, not having to earn money."

Now I'm all in favour of meritocracy, but it seems to me as though someone publicising what is essentially a private family matter and not wanting to leave their children any financial security has rather lost direction themselves.

Interesting article, thought I'm not so sure it's a case of her losing direction, but rather think that these people can't help but live in the public eye. Let's face it, that's what keeps her earning in the first place.

You are right of course. I was thinking that children's upbringing influences more their work ethics and determines whether or not they are spoilt. Also if discretion was used the children wouldn't know what they could inherit.
