How Much Should I Help My Adult Children?

Posted by Aaron Walker on Sep 16, 2020 9:00:00 AM

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.

Peacemakers Have Very Little Influence

This is something that I've been thinking about the past couple weeks. Not a lot over the past several months but a lot in the past few weeks.

I'm just like everyone else, you know. I want to lose a few pounds, I want to read a few more books, I want to make a little bit more money, we want to grow our business a little bit further.

But I started thinking about the bigger picture. I want to be an influencer I want to be a guy that makes a difference. But the thing that holds us back I think the most is that we're afraid of what other people will think. We're afraid of conflict. In anybody's life now I think that we should be diplomatic how we present things but I think that we need to take a position in whatever it is you stand for to be an influencer.
