    All the more reason

    Hello!

    A son: Nothing is left of the money I earned as a part-timer in the last summer. I cannot afford to repair my XXX.

    His father: All the more reason, I always told you to save some money.


    Is the use of ‘All the more reason’ right in this case?

    Thanks in advance

    "All the more reason + to + infinitive".

    Son: I can't afford to repair my car. I've spent all my money from last year.
    Father: All the more reason to save money next year!
