Financial planning for the future generation

Most parents would like to provide their children with a life that they can enjoy. What that looks like can differ greatly from one family to another, and even from one parent to the other. Many parents would like to provide financially for their children into adulthood, and then there are others who prefer to focus on life skills, and have a sink or swim attitude (no prizes for guessing where I sit on the spectrum).

One of the things that we always ask at Achieveit Financial Planning is what your ambitions for your children are. Your answers can tell us a lot about where you sit, and what kind of allowances that will need to be made for your own personal financial plan. For instance, if you would like to help your children attend University, then we need to establish what that assistance will look like, and work that into your future cash flow considerations. Or perhaps University isn't a priority, but giving the children a leg up into the property market is? Others still may provide board-free accommodation until the children are in full time work, and then they're out on their own. There really is no right, or wrong choice, as long as the expectations between the child and the parents are communicated.

Having this conversation about your children, with your partner is essential. There is the chance that you may not be on the same page, in which case, you will need to negotiate to find some common ground. Once you have these goals in mind, then we can start planning for them. What is your timeline, and how can we best use your resources to accomplish your goals? As always, the earlier you start with these things, the better.

  1. Your post is excellent and helpful because I'm a student and know that sometimes students think about their financial issues. I depend on myself for all expenses of study. I also do a job for continuing my study, but sometimes I don't submit assignments before the deadline, and last time my teacher assign me an essay writing, I didn't write the essay. When the deadline for submitting the essay came, I was anxious about offering the essay to the teacher. My friend Harry suggests an online writer who will write my essay for me cheap. I got the writer's complete essay and submitted it to the teacher. After this submission, my friend and I' do a Financial plan for the future.

  2. This was definitely more than financial exhortation. It added up to 'financial life training', a generally new expert field that regards cash and life as interwoven and is really comprehensive in its methodology.
