Our expert says:
You're right that someone should not expect charity from others if they still waste money on regular visits to the hair salon or have a servant to do work they could do themselves --- its not helpful to just spoon money to someone who is wasting it or managing it badly --- he should sit with her and list her income and expenditures and find ways in which she can save money so as to manage better. And if she can aford a holiday in Durban, she has no excuse to com,plain of being unable to buy food for her family. She seems to have her priorities all mixed up.
Could you propose to him, emphasizing that its to help her sort out her chronic problems rather than nibbling at them piece by piece, a suggestion that the three of you maybe with a financial advisor from her bank, should get together to fort out her budgets and priorities so she can manage better on the income she and her family has ?
