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.

Sacrifice Is Required In The Beginning

Posted by Aaron Walker on Aug 28, 2020 9:00:00 AM

The message is is that we've got to sacrifice things today for the greater good later.

Dads, listen up. If you're not taking the time that you need to to pour into your sons or your daughters, I want to encourage you today to take that time because later on when they're young men and young women they're gonna have this great aspiration to do good for themselves as well and then they're going to take the time to listen.

Do You Go The Extra Mile?

Guys, if you got kids today or teenagers who have gone astray, I'd like to encourage you to do what my friend did. Constantly tell them how much you love them regardless what they have done. We do not need to give up easily as parents. We need to do every single thing that we could possibly do in our human ability in order to win that child back!

If not now, when? When are you gonna to do it for your wife and children? There's more to life than working every single day. Stop disrespecting your family when it comes to money. You can't always say no in spending on something. Sit down and plan how to spend.
