The son is in his early 40s. He has achieved financial independence after a decade of patient saving and investing despite a lacklustre career and even losing his job a couple of times. The father feels proud that the son is able to take care of himself financially despite bad luck in life. The son has never given the father cause to worry, at least when it comes to money.
Recently, the son announces that he want to retire and become a loafer. Rather than stay in a job or start some business in order to contribute to society, the son prefers to loaf around and invest/trade full-time to earn a living.
As a parent, how would you advise the son?
