Daddy Spotlight: Sting Won’t Be Sharing Wealth With Kids.

Sting

 

Singer, Sting is one of the worlds most well-known artists, but that is not the reason why he has created such a buzz recently. As a father to six children there is no doubt that his job as daddy is just as hard (if not harder) than any other man on this planet.

Ready for the buzz?

The singer who is reportedly worth about $300 million, says he won’t be leaving his three sons and three daughters a big inheritance when he dies.

Why, you ask…

The simple reason is because he wants them to earn a living on their own, without relying on his money.

“I told them there won’t be much money left because we are spending it! We have a lot of commitments. What comes in we spend, and there isn’t much left,” the 62-year-old rocker told The Daily Mail in an interview. “‘I certainly don’t want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks. They have to work. All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate.”

This dotes, a good dad in my opinion. Yes, he has a HUGE fortune and it is a little selfish when you look at it from an outsiders perspective, but as parents do we really want to be raising spoiled brats?

In the world of media, I really find it refreshing to see a dad like this stand up and attempt to raise somewhat ‘normal’ children with values, and lifestyles that are valued. I have to admit though, a tiny part of me hopes that when that day does come the money is given to his children and they honor it as the achievement that it is.

What do you think? Is Sting selfish not to share his wealth with his children?

  • Nope, their is a huge amount of rich people/celebrities/philanthropists who are doing this and it is a great way to teach your kids to work for what they want. The amount of opportunity and support they have to reach their goals is huge in comparison to those of us in the middle class.

  • some new details surrounding the case and thought
    I would update you on what has happened as a result of this sad situation. The post-war
    era saw the couple relocating their National Book Store to
    ‘Avenida’, which worked out well because business started picking up
    in no time at all. That means that you are speaking to him just
    like how his friends talk to him and that makes him interested in listening to what you
    have to say.

  • I think it is great. I wish more wealthy parents would do with their kids.

  • What a stuff of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable knowledge
    concerning unpredicted emotions.

  • I think this is terribly selfish. Just because you plan to leave something for your children doesn’t mean you don’t raise and discipline them. Why can’t you teach your children good work ethics and still leave something to help when you’re gone? What if something happens? What if they or their children get sick or have an accident? There are plenty of people who work hard and then have an unfortunate change of circumstance.
    I’m a single parent and I’m teaching my daughter to work for what she wants and to take care of herself and be self sufficient. I’ve never had a problem with her being a brat because she wasn’t raised that way.
    I’ve grown up with kids who’s parents were very wealthy but they were raised with discipline and ethics and were wonderful people–and were left money when their parents passed.
    I sure don’t have the money Sting does, but rest assured I’m leaving my child whatever I can to help her out when I’m gone. It’s called love.
