Alright. I know a few sides of this. What's your thoughts?
Some people say they have the ole "college fund" for their kids. Now, a lot of the kids I went to college with whose parents gave them the college fund.....screwed off like crazy, drank, got poor grades and never made it in their careers. The ones I know that paid for it themselves worked their asses off and achieved all and more than what they intended. Is that always the case? Do you have a college fund for your kids? Were you given one?
My brother in law went to a one year college for repairing/painting cars. Cost his parents about 30 thousand. Guess what.....he is not working on cars and isn't paying a cent on that. Is that fair to the parents? Or is that just money and a choice kids make?
