3 RecommendationsFor Parents of Adult Children

  • 1

    Don't pay off their debt for them.It’s critical that your adult children take responsibility for their debt and learn the discipline to pay it off themselves. Paying their debts for them can only create a bigger debt problem in the future.

  • 2

    Introduce them to a financial professional.Each of your adult children—as young as college-age—should have a financial professional to help them navigate their debt and finances. Introduce them to a professional and stay involved as needed.

  • 3

    Encourage them to create a plan.The most important advocacy we can give is to help your children create a plan to pay off their debt, free up cash flow, and start saving for the future. A payoff plan will give you and them peace of mind.
