Thanks to everyone for the replies!
Thanks to everyone for their very interesting replies! They are much appreciated!!! The subject matter at hand is being extensively discussed by a number of friends here. Good to have other opinions.

Also, thanks to Roger for the "welcome back." Work on the "Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs" has kept - and is keeping - me busy. If anyone is interested, here is the URL for that website:

Thanks again! Smile Charli

Nip this in the bud.
Even though all 5 of us kids had to buy our own cars, my parents had 2 rules. One was that they were listed as co-owners until we were 18 and the other is that we have insurance. My brother skipped an insurance payment and my parents sold his car.
Now thats hardcore. Are all five kids responsible?
Yes, all 5 of us turned out responsible.

Are you or your siblings going to do the same thing to your kids?

I wasn't raised by anybody and now I am TOTALLY irresponsible. I can barley function I have to learn all these things you responsible people learned at a very young age as an adult.

2 of us don't have kids, the other 3 have kids that are already grown, have high paying jobs and already have kids of their own.

Thanks. I think my parents did a pretty good job considering there was 5 of us. We weren't all goody goody either. I did my fair share of skipping school, going to parties to drink, sneaking out of the house, etc.

btw my mom didn't have to advertise in the local paper to sell my brother's car. It was a muscle car and everyone new why it was being sold. I still miss that car. Good memories of that car.

I haven't changed my mind about the mother doing what she did. She set the rules and her son didn't abide by them so, suffer the consequences imo.

Actually, after my dad's funeral in August we were all talking and it was brought up. We ended up laughing about it. My brother and I were really close in high school and he was more mad at himself than my parents over that car.

I don 't know the law of Iowa,
but as a general rule one person cannot sell
the property of another person,
regardless of their genetic relationship.

In other words, as a general rule,
such a sale wud be no more valid
than if the son sold his mother 's or father 's car ( or both ).

The person who is entitled to sell it is the person who owns it.

From the article:

"She says she set two rules when she bought the car at Thanksgiving: No booze, and always keep it locked."

She bought the car so she probably had the car in HER name.

That 's probably what happened,
and the newspaper reporter was ignorant enuf
to describe it as her son 's car,
when in fact, he was only BORROWING it;
either that,
or the son ( if he were mad enuf )
cud have her arrested for stealing and selling his car.

I don't know if you read my prior post, but my parents sold my brother's car while we were in high school. He had a job and how did he get there? Walk or got a ride from a friend There were no buses where I grew up.

No, because the car was in my parents name even though my brother bought it. The next car he bought, he never missed an insurance payment.

So, effectively, he made a gift of the car to them
before thay sold it.
