A loving family is something we all work towards, want, and nurture…we are always parents, and our children are always our children no matter how old they are or how old we are!
Economic conditions sometimes call upon that family connection to take care of each other. But, when adult children continue to be children looking to family to continually support their lives, it can become a problem. Parents are living longer and need their money longer. If financial drains become financial sewers, it may be time to sit down as a family to discuss a Family Spending Plan.
Each family member has their own needs, their own wants, and their own dreams. Each family member is to be respected in this communication. But then, the FAMILY Needs, Wants, and Dreams need to be considered while respecting the individual family members’ needs, wants, and dreams. It is now when COMMUNICATION and COMPROMISE within the family needs to be uppermost in each person’s conversation. It is time to close the BANK and to figure out as a family how to continue on so all members feel okay with the individual and family decisions. And then it is time to CELEBRATE as a Family as each person realizes their needs, wants, and dreams.
STOP THE FIGHTING, START SHARING YOUR NEEDS, WANTS, AND DREAMS
BEGIN TO REALIZE AS A FAMILY THAT CLOSING THE BANK OF MOM AND DAD IS A GOOD THING!
