According to a Bank of America study, a third of parents dipped into their personal finances to help their adult children during the pandemic. A majority of parents still say they would help their adult children if they needed it, but how do you, as a parent discern if it is the best decision for your situation? In this segment with Faith and Finance Live's Rob West, we'll tackle this delicate subject with Rob providing some guardrails to help us determine whether our helping is helping or enabling. Let's learn together how to be wise in how we come to the aid of our adult children.
