  • I would rather win it myself and be able to put it aside for my child when they are old enough to learn what to do with that sort of money. I'd like to be able to give my child a great life, and have them grow up as great adults and then one day have that for them to fall back on instead of them winning 10 million at, lets say 21, and have never earned it, learned how to budget it, or blow it in a few years.

  • I'd rather I win it because I'd give some to my child obviously and I know I'd be better at handling the rest.

  • I would rather win it so that I can provide my child with everything that she needs, and create a trust fund and/or college fund for her so that money would not be such a stress for her as it's been for us. I wouldn't go out of my way spoiling her, but I would make sure that more than just her basic needs and a few wants were taken care of.

  • I would want to win it so I could give my children the best upbringing and education possible....and of course they'd have a nice trust fund for when they get older.
