Naturally, a parent often wants their child to have the best regardless of their age. Even when a child becomes an adult, a parent may still pay for specific expenses because they feel the need to do so. In the end, parents may not know the correct time to stop paying their child’s bills.
A survey of millennials aged between 25 and 35 by Fidelity established startling conclusions. 47% of the millennials noted that their parents had assisted them in paying part of their expenses since they started living independently. Cell phone bills top the expenses that many parents paid for at 21%. It is followed closely with groceries at 20% and clothing at 16%. The Utilities take up 14% of the expenses that parents pay and rent 12%.
What are the implications? The Federal Reserve posits that half of the United States’ population has a savings of less than $400. In contrast, the average savings of the millennials surveyed is $9,100. It is much far above the country’s average. Over a half of the millennials have retirement savings and investment accounts. Therefore, they are financially readying themselves for the future, which is a commendable thing.
Conversely, there is a need to look at how parents that support their children are affected. A times one may wonder whether the parents are sacrificing their financial safety for the prosperity of their children. Learn more about Sam Tabar: https://twitter.com/samirtabar?lang=en
Additionally, it raises the doubts on whether the parents have enough funds in the retirement accounts to enable them retire comfortably.
Parents that are offering help to adult children should significantly consider their financial situation when they retire. Some of them may have prepared well by not risking their financial stability to assist their child. However, with a half of the adult population having a savings of less than $400, chances are parents are harming their own finances. That is by continuing to cater for the child’s expenses.
Therefore, parents that opt to use the funds for the financial well being should have a candid discussion with their child. A child that has $9,100 in savings can cater for their own bills. They should take up financial responsibility for their expenses. For this reason, Parents should not jeopardize their financial well being when the children can support themselves.

EOS, or Evolution of Smooth, have previously kept quiet about their business strategies and techniques for success, but in this exclusive interview with Fast Company, EOS reveals details about their success story.
Keeping quiet was a deliberate move on the company’s part, explains Sanjiv Mehra, EOS lip balm cofounder and managing partner, in the interview. But as the company grows, the founders feel it’s important for their consumers to know more about them and who they are.
And surely people are curious about the unique lip balms that are in and of themselves somewhat mysterious. The unique orb shape coupled with a distinctive lack of markings adds an aura of mystique – which is, in part, an aspect of the company’s business strategy.
The founders knew succeeding in the lip balm market would require a distinct and unique product that would stand out among the many standard tubes without being a passing fad or even worse, a cheap gimmick.
More than one factor went into the design decision, however. From a necessity to engage all five senses to a targeted demographic, every aspect was carefully chosen to create a beautiful and stand-out lip balm.
Another crucial angle to EOS’ success can be found in their target demographic: millennial women. Women purchase and use the most lip balm, and yet, the majority of brands available on the market don’t target their products at women, opting instead for a more unisex feel.
And so EOS claimed their demographic and set about making connections with their potential customers through Facebook and other social media sites, blogs, and more.
Their hard work has paid off. EOS is now the second best-selling lip balm on eBay, just behind Burt’s Bees, and sells one million units per week.

There are many options that are available for people to communicate and keep in touch with those who are currently in jail. Among those options are visitation, phone calls, and now, a brilliantly designed and innovative program that is being used by select correction facilities, a program referred to as Securus Technologies. Securus Technologies is taking the correctional facilities by storm in its communicative design. It is a program that enables inmates to participate in visitation sessions with their relatives, friends, or significant others via means of video conferencing in which the “visitor” in this case can simply “visit”, although not technically, from the comfort of their very own home.
There are a vast array of reasons why people are choosing to utilize this form of communications over actual visitation in a jail center. Firstly, the visitor is no longer obligated to travel any specific distances to the jail as they can conduct their visitation session over a computer connection. Second, the video conference session that Securus Technologies provides enables people to connect without having to go through the lengthy appointment processes that have often been an issue for many when setting up scheduled appointments, and last (at least in this particular list; there are probably a lot more, but we will not get into it here,) it enables authorities to take advantage of an opportunity in which they may potentially be able to make an arrest if any kind of evidence is revealed. In this case, conversation counts as evidence, thus, giving them the right to utilize any segments of what is being said by either party if needed.

We were quite literally at the end of our rope when you had our first call with Securus, and it was over Christmastime. We were in a bind as our family was split up between the jail and home. I wanted to see my mom for the holidays, and no one made it out the jail. We started a Securus call, and our lives changed. This article explains how we altered our lives with one call from Securus, how they helped us set up an account and speak to my mom often.
#1: Mom Was Far Away
Mom was in a jail that no one could visit, and it was hard to see her at any other time than a video call. Video calls were not an option we knew about, and we found out about Securus and their video network. The videos created by the network are solid, and we see each other easily. The video is easy to use, and we all stay on the calls through our phones and tablets.
#2: The App Makes A Difference
We have an app that makes quite a difference in our lives, and we connect to Securus with on tap of the screen. We have the app on all our devices because it is easier to use, and I have set up calls for members for the family while we all stand around one phone or tablet. I taught my cousin how to use the app on her phone, and she loves to talk to my mom now.
#3: The Customer Service
I called to set up my service, and I asked the person on the other end of the phone how to manage my account from my computer. I learned many things about my account, and I have an account today that was started with the first person I talked to. I have sent many people in the family over to receive help with their accounts, and I am pleased with the way their company looks after us. I feel welcome and respected at all times with Securus.
Securus began with a promise to offer video calls that cannot be breached, and they bring the video calls to more jails around the country every day. There is no greater service to families this holiday season than what we see when we call with Securus. I appreciate their app, their commitment to our family and their video quality.
