Do you think as adults we should learn to stand on our own two feet from a money perspective?
Do you think gifts of money support and promote our ability to look after our families ourselves (emotionally) or do you think it hinders us in some way?
Do you think financial support indebits family members to one another?
These other threads have made me wonder how I would actually feel if another family member gave us money (it's never happened and it's not likely too) I've always thought it would be a lovely gift, a blessing but now I'm wondering if never having to really struggle would of made me the same person I am today? I'm not saying that those that have been given gifts aren't proud but I am proud that hubby and I have always managed to get through our troubles ourselves even if it did cause a lot of stress.
