Parents take care of their children when they are still young and cannot earn for themselves yet. Eventually, when the time comes that the parents are too old, it will be the responsibility of the children to feed them and give them the same or more than the same amount of love and care they showed to them when they were still strong. However, disclosing this topic to parents takes courage. Some parents cannot accept yet that they are already growing old and that they can no longer earn money. You have to balance the situation well especially when you are familiar that your parents are not comfortable with this issue.
To make it easy, do some researches before you talk to them. Know everything that you have to know. Maximize the advent of technology. Log on to different websites that can reveal the accounts of your parents in different monetary institutions. Ask the different sectors of the government whether your parents are applied to pensions and other financial supports. Also use their colleagues to gather information. Inquire whether they still have properties in different places that you are not familiar with. If you think that you cannot get anything from other sources already, it is time to take the big leap and talk directly to them. If you think that talking to them seriously about this matter will only make things worse, then do the job one step at a time. Start by asking whether they still have money left in their accounts. Use a very soft voice and ask like you are so worried about their future. Also, give them the assurance that you are going to support them when they have none. If they already feel comfortable with the topic, then it is already time to gather more information. Ask now whether they have plans when the time comes that they acquire illnesses due to old age. Use the time well when you know that they are in the mood to talk about this topic. Never let them feel that you are counting the money you are going to spend for them.
