My dad has a habbit of over spending and his spending is always on a higher side. How do I get rid of this habbit of my Dad? He has always spent more than his earnings and thus the result is known to all of us. He does not spend only on his family but also on friends and relatives. Whoever asks for the money, he is very much willing to give them the money. He never thinks twice before giving money to anyone. He always says that God is there to help everyone but now we are under a major financial crunch and it is giving us a hard time. My dad is not asking for money from the people he has given credit to and also tends to spend on immaterial things. Please suggest how we get rid of this habit of my dad. Please feel free to share!!!!

Your dad is kind-hearted, God-fearing and generous perosn. Rare are the peole like him in our materialistic age. He is self-respected as well. He does not ask for his own money from his friends. His sincerity and generosity will not go in vain. God does not leave such people in lurch or in adversity. Your finacial crunch, if God willing, will be soon over. What your dad must do is to keep check on his money now. Naturally, he can't help his generosity, but he must avoid lavishing money on deserving people. He needs to distinguish between deserving and undeserving people. I think He is sensible man, and he is soon going to overcome his problems. May God bless you!

I think his father should stop spending like that at least now.He should not continue when he is not having adequate money for himself.It is high time the mother should ask for a certain amount for the family budget and let him spend the rest alone.Cheers!

I am really sorry for you dad. Even my dad was like this until a few years back. My aunts always want money and my dad even in debts himself in giving them cash. But my aunts never bothered to thank him or help him when my dad suffered. Now my dad has got an idea how to spend. I think there is no use advising. My dad gets angry when I do that. The best teacher would be experience itself. Regards, AJ.

A nice idea,would be guiding him to make investments with his money and tell him the profits he will get after some time.That will really interest him.Another way is get him into commitments like building a new house,buying a new car and get those things in installments.And trying hard to meet the dues,he will stop throwing his money to immaterial things.Cheers!

Yes, I agree with you. His, being a generous and helping, just needs to set his priorities right.
