How to protect beneficiaries from themselves.

Billionaire Warren Buffett was famously quoted as saying that when it came to leaving your children money, the sweet spot is "enough money so that they would feel they could do anything, but not so much that they could do nothing."Few of us need to worry about leaving our kids so much that they could comfortably choose to do nothing. But many middle-class parents do worry that certain of their children (or grandchildren) might squander an inheritance on drugs or gambling, make bad financial decisions, or be manipulated by a spouse. Some decide to cut out these problem children entirely, fearing that an inheritance would only make things worse.But there are many options that fall between the two extremes of simply leaving money with no strings attached and leaving nothing. If you are concerned that any inheritance you leave your adult offspring could be quickly wasted, here are some steps you can take.
