And if you start, the younger the age, the better, more chance they have to ride the up and down's in the market. But, investing in stocks for kids really, one of the standard recommendations is to take a little bit more risk than maybe you might yourself, only in that there is, if there is a serious upside potential, it's a good company, it's a well managed company, you're not taking unnecessary risk, there is really a great time horizon there to, to make more money. And if you feel that the money should be a bit more secure, maybe it's not for say, the kids retirement account, or something to buy a house with later on, it's something for a more immediate need, then I would pull in the, the risk a little bit.
