    I agree. I help whomever I can. Complete strangers. Why not? If I've got it to give, what's there to lose?
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    Things are getting pretty tight for me financially so I'm glad you guys will let me stay with you for awhile. Don't worry, I'll slap on an apron and manage the household affairs. I ain't too proud to beg ya'll.

    I create a thread basically stating that it seems like alot of adults are leaning on their parents, and are still only getting by. Then I asked if these dependant adults will be equipped to care for *their* children when they get older. If not, what happens?

    We seem to have gone off topic in a not-so-good way. Likely that was my fault.

    That's not even close to the question I was trying to ask.

How priceless is attention/company for the young and old?
    The refusal to offer money/time assistance to parents comes from my observations in nursing homes, Alzheimer's meetings, and assisted living facilities. Some of the other observations comes from co-workers or friends. So my view is admittedly myopic, which is why I used qualifiers. Also, I know that these behaviors don't necessarily indicate how these adults will treat their children. It only indicates how they treat their parents.

    However, combine that with the fact that many people aren't very good with handling money in the long term, and you get the reason I was wondering about what's going to happen in the future. You are right in that I don't have the big picture with even the people that I've observed.

    If I recall, it's just the opposite.

    all I know is my family is like this support children until out of undergrad then the kids are expected to take care of the parents in their old age. of course my parents will help out if needed finacially as long as were at least doing something to better ourselves/lifes and if they can. I mean I don't expect them to buy me a house or a car but I also don't expect them to let me starve either. Most likely after college I can't get a job to pay for shit I'll have to move back in with them even though I don't like this idea its not the end of the world. And btw with mental illness you don't always know just by looking at them so, yeah.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Opposite of what?

    Check out the Journal of Financial Planning that's where I got it. http://www.fpaforfinancialplanning.o...port_Final.pdf which was a citation from some other article I can't find now.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I don't think it's anyone's business what any family does.
    It's private. Period.

    Perhaps it's only in first world countries where ladies squander their money. Microloans seem to think that women are the more responsible ones.

    Perhaps it's only in first world countries where ladies squander their money. Perhaps I don't live in a first world country.

    Question: Why do you care? Is it really your business what people decide to do with their money?
