How Much Should I Help My Adult Children?

This has been an age-old battle and it happens relentlessly throughout all stages of life.

 

I want to tell you one of the things that I think my parents did a wonderful job on.  I didn't think so at first but once once I've gotten a little bit older I fully realized why my mom and dad took this approach when I turned 18 years old.  I was still living at home and my mom came to me one day and she said. “Listen. starting today you're 18 years old.  You're a young man, you're gonna start paying rent.  We don't need the money but you need the experience you need to practice.”  And I'm like man, “This is I don't like this like.  This is a terrible thing.”  But later in life I come to realize that there's a time to kind of cut the strings.  There's a time that you go out on your own and you become the man that God called you to be.

 

Here's the thing that I see happening over and over and over.  Parents today are enabling their adult children.  When you are enabling your adult child, you're not doing them any favors.
