Marie Osmond says her kids won't get an inheritance

Marie Osmond wants her seven kids to make their own fortunes, according to a new report. The country singer believes individuals who are simply "handed money" often end

up lacking drive and ambition, and she wants her children to discover their own interests on the road to forging meaningful careers. As a result, Osmond told Us Weekly she doesn't

plan to leave her kids an inheritance. "Honestly, why would you enable your child to not try to be something? I don't know anybody who becomes anything if they're just

handed money," Osmond told the tabloid. "To me, the greatest gift you can give your child is a passion to search out who they are inside and to work. I mean, I've done so many

things from designing dolls [and much more]. I love trying [and] I wanna try everything. I'm a finisher." By contrast, Inheritances "breed laziness and entitlement," she

added, noting that she plans to spend the money she's made with husband Stephen Craig, whom she has married twice.  Osmond expressed similar views on leaving wealth to

posterity in 2020 on "The Talk," saying she believes inheriting large sums does children "a great disservice." At the time she said she planned to donate her fortune to

charity. Warren Buffett's advice The late actor Kirk Douglas also donated most of his $61 million fortune to charity upon his death in 2020, according to Fox Business. The

to more than 200 organizations since its inception.
