The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet's guest contributor program, which is separate from the company's news coverage.NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- An honest and heartfelt conversation becomes essential when you think it's time to stop financially supporting your capable son or daughter. Q: I'm a successful financial analyst with a challenging 25-year old son, pursuing a career as a painter. He's a brilliant kid who went to an excellent school, but has had meager job opportunities since graduating. It's evident that pursuing any jobs, even a supplemental part-time job, has taken a backseat to his art. While I've always encouraged him to follow his obvious artistic talent, his disdain for pursuing his own income upsets me greatly. I love him very much, but at present I'm fully supporting him. Please help me to navigate my frustration!
