Thirty percent of Americans ages 50 to 64 has an adult child living with them most of the year – the highest point in 40 years!* Here are some tips on how to cope with an adult child returning home:

Set a deadline. Establishing a target move-out date can help keep your kids focused on the future.

Expect financial help. If they have a job, grown kids should pay their own phone bills and contribute to household costs such as food and cable TV.

Work together to determine rent. Decide on a reasonable rate, then save their contributions for a security deposit on a new apartment or furniture.

Ask them to pitch in. In lieu of rent (or in addition to it) your kids should help out around the house. If you’re not happy with the current situation, speak up!

Offer financial advice. Remember your kids are dealing with new issues like student loans, credit cards and health insurance. They may not ask for your advice, but they probably need it.

It’s no surprise that one in five American teens lack basic financial literacy skills – and considering that only 17 states across the nation mandate personal finance courses in schools, it’s up to parents to ensure their children understand how to properly manage their finances.*

This year, take charge when preparing to send your children back to school and make talking to them about money matters as much of a household priority as any back-to-school checklist item. This time of year is ripe with reasons to talk about personal finance, so be sure to take advantage of the opportunities when they arise.

Here is a way to incorporate finances into activities you and your child(ren) will probably already be doing together to prepare to go back to school:

  1. Make a back-to-school supplies list. Use the list your child’s school provides and add other items you know they’ll need to create a master back-to-school list. Help your child guess how much each item costs and then look up the real costs and compare.
  2. Make an inventory of what you already have. Decide from your list what you already have and what you’ll need to buy. Deduct the costs of what you have (and what you’ll save) from your list.
  3. Set a budget. Determine how much you can spend for the items on your list you’ll need to purchase. Let your child know the money has to come from somewhere, so if you are moving money from your regular household budget to cover back-to-school necessities, don’t keep them in the dark.
  4. Go shopping and save. Take your list to the store (or to the internet) and let your child help select items with the goal of saving the most money. Once you’ve crossed all the items of your list, buy your child a special treat with whatever money you’ve saved and pat yourself on the back for imparting a crucial money lesson they probably wouldn’t have learned in school.

Primerica Canada is moving its headquarters in Mississauga, ON, just in time for the upcoming 2018 Canadian Convention, which will be held July 27-28 in Toronto.

The Canadian Head Office will occupy more than 43,000 square feet of leased office space that has been completely designed to Primerica’s specifications.

“It is a state-of-the-art office where we can conduct business, continue to grow and add staff, and help more Canadian families become financially independent,” said CEO Glenn Williams.

The move and the convention are two significant milestones for 2018 in Primerica’s 32-year history of doing business in Canada, said Primerica Canada President Jeff Dumanski.

“The premise on Financial Drive will be a centre piece for our representatives to conduct business and meet clients, but will also offer interactive displays, recognition of our sales leaders and showcase our record breaking history in Canada,” said Dumanski.

The same week of the move, Primerica Canada will host its first ever Canada-wide Convention, where thousands of Primerica leaders will convene at the Toronto Congress Centre.

“We’re excited to bring together thousands of Canadians from across the country to a central event in Toronto,” said Williams. “This platform provides the perfect opportunity for previewing initiatives and recognizing the great successes of our Canadian sales force leadership.”

Dumanski added: “Coupling these two events will indeed bring Primerica to the forefront of the financial services industry as we imprint our brand on the next 30 years of ‘Making A Difference.’”
