The Squeeze on the ‘Sandwich Generation’
More young people are living at home longer. It can save them a lot of money, but may be costing their parents more!
This trend of grown children staying home longer has contributed to the rise in the sandwich generation.
Middle-aged parents, “sandwiched” between raising their own children and caring for their aging parents, are becoming professional caregivers.
And it’s no easy job! It requires a great amount of time, money, and patience. First Timothy tells us to take care of our families and help provide for them. But in order to do that, you have to have a lot of wisdom, careful planning, and a great budget!
Even if you are not currently sandwiched but you need help creating a better budget, we have free tools to get you started at crown.org/money.
