Advice for my children 

An amusing and actually useful list of "50 things every 18-year old should know." I agree with all of it, although I cannot say that I have been wholly successful in passing all of this wisdom on to my own children.

That is a great list, TH. Although it is from "Right-Wing News" little if any of it is political, it is nearly all very sound life advice. And many older people could benefit from it, including even myself at times.

A well done list. I would add: Read Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People". Keep the book handy and add margin notes to yourself about what parts work best in your life, for the rest of your life. Past the book onto your children.

Number 3 'compound interest is your friend' should have a corollary 'inflation is your enemy'.
