This is actually a tricky question for me. I am not yet a parent but i am just being curious on what is your opinion on parents who banks with their children?If I am going to base it on my own life, I can say that my Mom has right to bank on me. She was the one who supported me when I was studying.She provided all the needs that I needed that time. I think this is the right time to give her all the pleasure that she needs after the pressure that she had experience. What about you?What is your opinion on this?If you are not yet a parent, is your parents banking with you?How do you react on it?If your a parent, do you bank on with your children?Share your opinion. Happy mylottting!!

what do you really mean by this friend rberon?! well if this means are they saving in the bank for my future? well, when i was younger. i guess not but they do make it to a point that the 3 of us their siblings could get a bette future. my dad is the only one who goes to work and my mom as a full time house wife. but all i can say they did a very great job in our growth years. we became better individuals. i dont really truly get it. but i hope that i am right?! jhelai

LolI was laughing while reading your response. I re-read that discussion that I make and I asked myself what I am really trying to the discussion. I think the title does not match did the content.So bad!I just don't know what comes on my mind?What I am trying to say here is that is your parents asking money from you when you already have the job?Or you just give them with your good heart?Oh my, the title is really far from the content.I'm so sorry. happy mylotting!

I'm not quite sure what the OP means either... at first, I was thinking financial banking, but the other text of the original post makes me think that they were meaning "bank" figuratively speaking. If we were to talk about financial banking.. some states in America require that a child under the age of 16 or 18 have their parents cosign onto the bank account. Some states, in fact, entitle the parents to take a percentage of their working child's paycheck. When I was forced to share a bank account with a parent, my mother signed. I had several hundred dollars saved. When I went to withdraw $50 to pay my internet bill one month (yes I paid my own!), I was told that there was only $11 in my account. My father, who was a drunk, had drank away all of the bill money so my mother confiscated all of mine to make up for it. Even though I wasn't 18, I already paid for my own food, and rent/room & board. Why should I have had to share the money I earned so that my mother could take it to make up for staying with a drunk, nonworking and nonsupportive husband. Eventually I just got a lockbox and hid it somewhere and eventually quit my job.

You are working very hard then it will just be given to a non-sense people.happy mylotting!!

Hi Rberon. I know many of us who do our very best to help take care of our parents as they age, or to show our gratitude throughout our adult years to the parents who gave life to us, who raised us, and who loved and cared for us through our growing up years. So yes, my mom (dad has passed away) can count on me! Karen

I am so sorry to hear from you if your parents has passed away.It's good that even they are already gone, you still get to manage or to handle different problems.There are some people that cannot do something else without their parents. We should be very resourceful.We do not know when will our parents stay in this world.We should always make them happy.happy mylotting!!

Only my father has passed away, but my mom, now 86, is still alive, still very wise and deserving of her children's love, respect, and assistance. Karen

As a parent of two teenagers who have worked some already I don't ask for money just for everyday expenses. However I do ask that they contribute to some of their own WANTS. My son is supposed to pay a portion of his auto insurance but hasn't done so in a while. My daughter is real good about paying for some of the extras she wants. But I don't ask them to contribute to the household expenses.

Wow!I hope you will be my mom!LolJust kidding, I understand my Mom if she is asking me to send money for her. She is the only one who is supporting my two brothers in our province, our father already left us. It is also her right to receive money from us. Without her,I will not be achieving the position that I am having now in our company. She deserves to be given an honor.happy mylotting!!

Hi, In China, most parents bank on their child/children. Of course, my parents bank on me. And i also they should bank on me, as they nurture me and support me to be a master. I love them and appreciate them very much. I are trying my best to make them happy. It is my duty to do that and i am also happy to do that. No matter anything happened, i will support them and give their needs as much as i can Happy mylotting!

You are a food sample of a child. Our parents has exerted their efforts when we are still young so it is really our responsibility to assist them and give the things that will make them happy. We should not give them heartaches but we should give them pleasure in life.Without them, we are not here in this world. We should always thank them.

TO all moms who was trying to give the best for thier children that is exactly the right moves for them. I also tried to saved maney for my kids when i earned much money during my early age but I was failed. I spend it for them also. Medicines, cloting, foods, shelter and to thier education. Up to now, saving for them is my frustration. I don't saved for them even a centavo at the bank. The are now still studying one college and two in secondary level. Savings for them is really good.

we are children once and soon to be parents.. some are already on it while others still cannot find the right ways how to bank on their own or help out... many speculations... amny things to be discussed and explained. but we deal differently in our lives. so in my part, my parents are int he stage of still not having my dads pension. and my mom being a regular household mom... means she cannot have money or some bank accounts. many has happened and many did change. by now it is my turn to help out. though my parents are not asking for some help... maybe sometimes if they really needed to... but its my own state of mind to ehlp them out. i dont want to see my parents in such worrying state. with our everyday problems and their daily medications adds up to the thought of how and why are we experiencing this. but we always never lose hope. atleast i did have a job. though my other siblings are not helping out ... but we just pray to God for His guidance and ask for help as always. to guide in our right paths... jhelai

I am parent, but haven't started to bank with my kid since he is just 9 months old. Also, when i was young, my father didn't toke me to bank with himself. Instead he given me all the task of banks. And i used to deal every transaction from the bank.I always used to get amaze to much cash moving around, and made many good relationship with bank officials. Then my young brother start going there. So now i only go to bank for all of my father tasks. I only manage my own bank and daily go to the bank.. yeah daily since i am a banker.. lolzz I have plans to take my kid with me, when he is young enough to understand things. & might give him same responsibility which my father gave me.
