I think it's nice that parents share with their kids and help them out. That's what my parents did for me and I turned out OK.

However, I don't think it's a good idea to hand young people anything.

It's just not a good life lesson and they won't learn the values and morals they will need later in life.

Working for it is another story.
buying your kid a new mercedes or 05 mustang isn't helping out. that's spoiling them rotten. my first car was a hand me down from my mom. sure, she was helping out. it was a 98 mustang v6. nothing special at all. then she gave me 1500 for a down payment on my 04 GT. the other 8500 i put down was mine. that's helping out.
"help" depends on your perspective dude.

If the parents were multi-millionaires, the 100k isn't any different to them than my father buying me a 5k ride when I was 17.

My original statement that it isn't a good idea to hand anything to a kid stands
