would you help them if they were across country trying to get home because they lost their job thru no fault of their own?
Thank you I don’t mind helping, he’s 23 but his father won’t help at all. So that’s why I was asking opinions. I was thinking maybe up to the age of 24, 25. I know how it feels to not have any money and needing help and not getting it. Thank you.A lot of factors in play here. Hoping they get another job quickly.
Is this for a plane ticket, uhaul rental or gas/hotel/food to drive Xcountry? How old? How long have they been out of the nest? Are you flush with cash or are you watching your pennies? The fact that you asked leads me to think you are apprehensive. I often think it's good practice to go with your first instinct. I know this is a hard decision to make. Best of luck with this situation.
For discussion's sake, what happens after you die? Or when they're the parent? Who will make sure things are alright then?In all seriousness, I'll help them when they're 50 if they need it, and I'm still alive. I hope they're successful and independent enough that they won't need it - but I won't stop being their father, and fathers are there to make sure things are alright.

This is his first time asking for any help. His father finally decided to help out, so that's good also. No kids at the timeDepends, is the kid responsible, how many times have you had to bail him/her out, did they pay you back, all or partial, do they have children? I have helped my oldest daughter a few times, she was married to a S.O.B who was less than reliable when it came to child support.
I thought that was a parents job.would you help them if they were across country trying to get home because they lost their job thru no fault of their own?
Oh I will keep helping them if I’m able to. I know how it feels to need help financially and not getting it.I will help. Can’t take it with you. Money is not important in life. I want to die knowing I did all I could for my children. That was the whole point of having children. I will not write them off. I/we gave birth to them. They are the future. And, don’t forget the love factor. If you abandon your child, you should never have been a parent. My parents helped me. That was later in my life when things fell apart with the father of my children; he abandoned me, and the children; they were 3 and 5. Now, they are 30 and 32, and I am remarried for 20 years to the greatest man, ever. My parents helped me restart. They are gone, now, but I thank them every.single.day.
