Like it or not, money is a really important part of life. The economic world has become more complex with globalization. In addition, purchasing power has become lower than it was some decades ago. Economic crises are happening. Therefore, there are many adults who are financially dependent on someone, such as their parents.

From a practical point of view, economic dependence is a viable and supportive solution to such a problem. But from a psychological point of view, it can lead to numerous difficulties when a person wants to set certain essential goals.

Unemployment and financial dependence have an impact on self-esteem and self-esteem. Many people think that being dependent on others is “nice”. But it can still do a lot of damage.

Parents and financial dependence

There are, of course, many cases and circumstances where it is really difficult to find a job, but  there are also cases where financial dependence is encouraged by parents. In this sense, many parents complain that their children are not independent, but at the same time, they maintain habits that promote addiction.

There are many reasons why this happens. The most common is that parents do not feel comfortable with their own lives. Therefore, their children should be their excuse for not facing challenges.

There are also parents who have relationship problems that they look through their fingers at. Such parents use their children to avoid conflicts, or as a distraction. If their child becomes independent, they have no choice but to work for their own relationship.

Some parents, on the other hand, are afraid of loneliness and don’t want to face the well-known but ugly truth: children will always move away. And when that happens, children are no longer the center of their attention, even though parents are still a part of children’s lives.

Parents who allow adult children to be financially dependent

Many parents inadvertently encourage their adults to become financially dependent. They have protected their children too much since their childhood, making children insecure and dependent. When children try to start their own lives, such parents try to restrict them and manipulate their children so that they do not.

Children raised in this way are most likely to be financially dependent adults. Such children are less confident and do not want to move out of the home. They need their own place in the world, but don’t know how to build this.

They also feel unable to succeed here. This makes them take on low-paid or precarious jobs, or they do nothing to get a new job after losing an old job.

Financially dependent adult: a solution to the problem

When a person does not believe in themselves or their abilities, the pursuit of financial independence ceases to be an option. In his mind, the world can seem threatening and distant, so he prefers to stay home with his family. Fear overcomes him. He prefers to be criticized and does not want to enjoy the privileges of independence, let alone experience the tension of challenges.

Uncertain parents tend to raise their children as they are. Instead of these children struggling to find the perfect job, these children should focus on getting rid of fears that will not allow them to move forward. If they do not solve these problems, it will be really difficult for them to achieve their goals.
