I encouraged my children to take a job in a field as close to their field of choice as possible and to work diligently toward their goal, but I did not finance their life after graduation! I helped with cell phone and car insurance until they were employed, but that was it! There is a point where they are going to have to be grownups like the rest of us and why would anyone work to reach their goals when Mommy and Daddy are paying the bills! No. That is not helping them, it is handicapping them. There is always dinner on the table that they can come eat for free, but there is a time to begin taking care of yourself! My children were aware that it was coming....we prepared ahead and planned it out, so it was not a shock. No problems!
