    I totally agree with you and rated YOUR answer the BEST.Most American parents are too obsessed with the notion of NOT HELPING their children once they become adults They contend that their children should be TOTALLY INDEPENDENT, even STRUGGLING!

    I was going to say something similar until I read your answer, no need to repeat. :)

    Some important things are acceptable to offer financial help for. Definitely not everything.

    I wish someone would define "wealthy." If we are talking over 10 million- then yes, I would be willing to help more. It would depend on the individual- some kids are lazy freeloaders and others are motivated entrepreneurs. Earning teaches value.

    While I partially agree with you, if you were WEALTHY, you would help your child financially until he/she find his/her own way.Wealthy people do not make their children struggle financially, poor parents do that as they have no other recourse.

    Unfortunately I have seen parents who didn't give a hoot about their children or their future. But hats off to those parents who do!
