My brother, who is finalizing his divorce, has been talked

Customer Question

My brother, who is finalizing his divorce, has decided to giving up all his property and assets to his children who are teenagers.

He feels, that because of the divorce, this will influence them to feel positive toward him again.

As the kids currently side with their mother and currently want nothing to do with dad, he feels this will work. We feel that this make it harder for our brother to begin to establish a healthy relationship with his teens after the divorce, if they become instantly wealthy, and harder for him to gain their respect.

Can you provide us with any ammunition to convince him of this before he permanently ruins his future.
