A friend of mine had his kids early in life and now they are both in their 30s with their own families but they still come to him with the begging bowl when they need financial help (car service, new car, home improvements, hols etc). I've know him a long time and he's never been any different with them. His children aren't spoiled but he is their Bank Of Dad and they just expect him to help them out. He tells me I've got it easy but by the same token I think he's being taken for a ride.
Just wondered what you all thought about this sort of thing. When would you expect your offspring to take care of themselves?
