My dad wants to learn about options…

I show my dad gain and loss porn on this sub all the time. I have told him time and time again these wins and loses are due to dumb degen trading behaviour and it is not normal or smart in anyway. He has no idea how stocks or options (or really anything online) work but he loves hearing about these crazy trades.

Fast forward to today and my dad asks me “you know that reddit ….bets or whatever? Do they offer a course or something?”

He then started asking all kinds of things about options and defending it saying that it’s a way to “strategically beat the market.” Turns out he somehow started getting emails from WSB with top posts and from there he’s been learning all this stuff. I was confused when he told me one day that he thinks Elon should buy Sri Lanka but it all makes sense now.

Thanks guys.
