Once upon a time, there was one family who was all rich and led a luxurious life. The father was smart and hardworking and the mother worked with him. They like any other parents, gave some pocket money which was quite a lot. The parents were pretty lavish and were high-level spendthrifts too. They were earning big and so they were giving their kids a lot to enjoy. Their pocket money was just so high that they could survive without studying and doing work. These kids were smart too like their parents.
There was something different in the kids though. They were people who studied with all kinds of students and were friends with pretty much all of them. The parents worked hard but fate had a different plan. The company was bankrupt overnight with all their money invested completely turning into nothing more than a few hundred dollars. They had liabilities and loans piled upon their heads and nowhere to look. Their house was the only thing left with everything in it taken away.
The kids were smart as told earlier and they knew that the money they received was much more than required. Both the kids had saved the money fearing such a time. What was the money amounting to? It was equivalent to their parents' 6-month profits. Their parents were amazed at the money left. But this time the kids asked their parents to start afresh with their friends' parents. They sold the house and lived life in a decent way paying off the liabilities. Soon due to their smart kids and their partners they came back to a much better stage in life financially. But this time their parents had learned from their kids the art and importance of saving money. They kept the pocket money the same for the kids but decreased their spending drastically. It was a classic example of learning from children and the parents were happy to know that their children already knew this part of life. So we have to "Save the money and not use it unnecessarily".
