Happiness for the future...

At the end of math class, one of the girls in my class was complaining that all she had to do is work this weekend at Tim Horton's. She said that she had to work from 6am - 4pm every day this weekend and had tonnes of hours in the week. I asked her if she was saving any of the money, and she said that her mother made her put a percentage of it into savings and a percentage into saving for school and some she was allowed to spend. I told her that if she would save 10-20% out of every paycheque, she would be very rich in the future. I didn't get into the math of it (that will come later in the semester), but it sounded good that her mother was helping her get a head start in her financial life.
