Among the survey’s findings:
59% of respondents pay for an adult child’s cell phone.
When do they plan to stop paying? Here’s a sampling of what members wrote in the survey:
- “When they get out of school or they get married. It’s a safety issue for me.”
- “When they become financially independent and can afford to pay for their own rent and food.
- “Never, if you want them to keep in touch with you.”
- “I don’t think a parent should ever pay for this. We got along without a cell phone and so can they.”
When should you stop paying your child’s cell phone bill?
