What would you do?

You and your family go out to a sight. That lets you dig for diamonds (seen this on GMA).  And your son find a rough diamond. Worth maybe $10,000.

Sense he found it, would you sell it and put it into a savings account for his future. Or say. I payed for this trip.  It is  family money and goes to family things.

  • I guess it would depend on how the family was doing. If we were well enough off that we took a vacation together, then I would hope the money could be put away for the boy's future. If we were really struggling, then it wouldn't do much good to put the money away for a future that was already in jeopardy.

  • That is an interesting idea; to put the rock itself away for the child for when they are older. I like that idea.

  • My son is 32 and I am pretty sure that I would say keep it and put it toward bills or a house etc.

  • I would keep it for him in a lock box and when he is old enough to understand and handle the value I would hand him the key to the lock box and let him choose what to do.

  • I'd keep it for him. Maybe to use for an engagement ring if that event presented itself

  • He found it so it's his, IMO. I'd sale it and put the money in a savings account for him

  • I saw that story. I think I would split it with the kid & put his half in the college fund. After all, he wouldn't have found it if the parents didn't pay for the trip, right? Oh the luck of some people.
