As parents, we love and nurture our children throughout their lives, giving them everything they need to thrive in the world. But is there a time when your kids should truly leave the nest (and your wallet) behind while branching out on their own?
If you’re supporting your adult children, you’re not alone – and the following statements may ring true.
Almost 40 per cent of parents with children between 18 and 34 agreed strongly or somewhat with the statement that their offspring were financially dependent on them, and 33 per cent agreed strongly or somewhat that their children are causing a financial strain. – Rob Carrick, The Globe and Mail (September 21, 2017)
Environics Research surveyed 2,155 Canadian parents who have adult children not attending school and found that one-in-five were willing to put their own security and financial future in jeopardy to help their adult children. – Global News (2017)
As parents, we all want what’s best for our children – but sometimes, that means educating and empowering them about money in order to prepare them for a fiscally responsible future. Please join us for a conversation about how to financially support our young adults in the best way, so you can go from supporting to ‘launching’ your adult kids.
