(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) – Being an adult is expensive — so expensive that some parents are helping their adult children financially even after they are living on their own.
Fifty-one percent of parents financially support at least one of their adult children. That total includes parents whose children may have a disability, and the number goes down to 45% when counting parents without disabled children.

They're followed by those between 25 and 29 at 17%, according to the study by Savings.

Among parents who provide financial support to their grown-up children, the average monthly total is over $1,400. School expenses like tuition and rent or mortgage were the biggest areas in which parents help their children.
