Today on your Hollywood minute Amanda discusses a new study conducted by Credit Karma, that states adult children are still relying heavily on their parents for financial assistance. The survey found that out of 1,008 respondents nearly 1/3 or 31% of parents still provide for their adult children beyond the basics. Not just rent or utilities, but over half, 51%, allow their children to live at home. In addition, 48% pay their children’s bills including credit card bills, and car payments, while some even give them monthly allowances or checks. I’m sorry, but WHAT? Why are these parents continuing to enable their financially irresponsible children?

Between our government and today’s parents who want to make things better for their children – they have made them lazy. They do not have to fend for themselves or establish goals – taxpayers, aka the government, or mommy and daddy will take care of us, and they want more and more. It’s a sad state of affairs – and getting worse with so many unfulfilled lives.

Right. The country is being spent into dangerous bankruptcy by a bunch of irresponsible children in Congress (talk about an ACTUAL “National Security Threat”) while the Cultural Marxists have done a tremendous job of guilting parents into being their children’s “best friend,” incentivizing fatherless homes through welfare and Marxist professors and media cultivating an “entitlement culture” – if someone’s life isn’t to their liking, it’s someone else’s fault who owes them money! The whole recipe is a disaster.

I don’t know why I’m the only one to comment here; your blog is wonderful. It is short, sweet, packs a punch and comes from a Christian perspective; all things I love. I wish more journalists would follow your example; most of them run on like they love to hear themselves talk, with zero respect for their listener’s time. You show this respect and I thank you for it.
Merry Christmas!!
