Let's say your child was 19 and they already had a part time, and payed you what you asked for each month.
They're going to college full time
nope, I would not make them work while studying as well...
but it would also depend on their careers, for example.. if they were to study business or finance, administration... they could very well want to work as assistants, but given the case, it would be their choice and for their benefit
but MAKING them work to pay for their studies, no... I already have something saved for the time when my niece attends college, if she chooses to... time will tell
College is already a bit stressful. I would let them keep working part time.
Also, don’t let your family get to you. There are people who will chose to make you unmotivated, whether subconsciously or consciously, it is up to you to prove them wrong.
Funny thing is, when you start to make it in life, that is when they start giving a shi. Then they start asking favour they don’t really deserve.
Just prove your family wrong. You got this! 💜
Thank you so much 🥰
Make is a strong word…. I work like all my spare time.
I wouldn’t “make” them but if all financial goals and avenues…were exhausted and still needed money than it would b outa necessity.
To ur update…. Congratulations on ur choice. I guess to state …… I would do everything I could to help my kids with school. If it’s a job you live well I would only hope that you can keep it. It would be a mutual decision to quit the job…. For financial reasons I understand but it would b discussed and mutually agreed.
Full time, no.
I'd like for them to get a part-time job like I did during University, so they can have some work experience, but leave them still able to focus on study.
My kid's full time job is attending college. They could work part-time if they like.
Someone gets it
No because then they couldn’t focus, and their grades would probably drop.
No. Full time work and full time school is a heck of a lot to take on.
sorry it’s like that for you. If you are able to afford an apartment from the part time job that’s what I’d do.
Of course not
That's just gonna lead to either poor job performance or poor school performance
No, They all worked part time jobs but I made sure they had everything they had to succeed.
But everyone is different and has their own reasons.
Whatever they need to do to pay for theirselves. 19 is an adult. I lived on my own working 40 hours a week while going to school at that age.
Nope. My rents were so chill with me
First of all they are no longer a kid. They are an adult and I cannot make them do anything.
Second, if they are in college I want that to be their main focus. Whether or not I charge rent would depend on my adult child and how responsible I feel they are. If they seem financially responsible and I trust they will save for their future, I will not charge rent. If I feel they will blow all their money, I will charge rent. With that rent, I would save for them. They would not know about this savings and I would match 50-75% of their "rent" into this savings as well. I would turn this savings over to them when they leave the house or get married, whichever happens first.
