    what do you want to do with your life and money?
    personally I'm going to go to university and get a degree and at least a masters, hopefully I'll become an attorney, I only want to work a few years to save up money and travel around the world! I don't want to use my parents' money when I am older (until they die of course)

    i don't think i'm that spoiled... i do get an allowance and stuff, but usually if i want something big then i don't ask for it without doing anything, e.g. if i want something expensive i'll get like straight A/A*s or really good grades and then i'll ask for it as my 'reward'

    That is spoilt.If i get an a or a* i don't get rewards or anything its whats expected of me.I get no allowance or anything also,if I want something big then i am not going to get it regardless of what I do.

    That's pretty much how my gf lived after her father won the lottery. Twice. Ferraris were bought and many expensive apartments were bought amongst other things.

    Sadly, that life was short lived and was quickly spent and the family broke down. By the time she was 16, the father had such debts that he couldn't even afford to help her with studies. (no such government study aid in Spain) The father divorced and the family ended up living in poverty for a while (had to go to food banks and such).

    For this reason, wealth is a double edged sword. Hope everything works out for you and your family, just don't take anything for granted, before you know it, it could be all gone.
