If you have adult kids living with you, do you charge them rent?

If you are living with your parents, do you pay or contribute to household expenses?

Do you support your friends or family financially?

Are you a part of the sandwich generation?

This week, George and Shawn tackle the topic of contributing to household expenses. Nearly 1/3 of 18 - 34 year olds are living at home with mom and dad, and nearly 3/4 of them are contributing financially, according to an article on Yahoo.com - https://finance.yahoo.com/news/sure-hope-won-t-let-120000054.html

In addition, more than 20% of all americans are relying on friends or family for additional support - https://finance.yahoo.com/news/over-1-5-americans-counting-173000561.html

We talk about why these numbers are relevant, as well as when you should start talking to your kids about money, and about contributing to the household.

What are the signs of financial anxiety?

How does financial anxiety affect you?

How can you handle financial anxiety?

We apologize for the audio quality of last week's episode. Apparently, taking a month hiatus also impacted our recording equipment! That issue has been fixed, and the quality of Shawn's voice this week is all mother nature's fault.  George takes the lead this week, talking about financial anxiety, and how to recognize it and address it.

One of the more important factors in financial anxiety is to understand that you're not alone, nor unique. Many people have been through financial stress or anxiety and resolved their issues - you can too!

This week's episode is based on an article we found at www.healthline.com/health/anxiety/money-anxiety
