  • Because parenting never stops!

  • You have got to cut them off. You raised them the best you could and they make their own choices now. It is ok to help them now and then, but it sounds like they are taking advantage of you. They will never learn to live on their own if you do not make them. Stop helping them and try to give them advice instead on what they should do to help themselves, it is really doing what is best for them.

  • I have helped my grown children but not to the point of nearly going to jail, and they wouldn't ask me to. I think it really depends on how they were raised. Mine had to earn a lot of they things they wanted. We did not automatically provide what they wanted.
