She went to University 29 hours away from home in our home country of Canada. Her decision to go to this particular University was based on a boy and his promises. Needless to say he didnt step up to the plate. My husband and I gave her $2K to get on her feet and then probably another $1K when that didn't happen. She is alone there and insists she can get a good education there at a good cost. Long story short, she has an education fund that pays for her school related expenses and she is responsible for the rest. We warned her that the money was not neverending and finally had to cut her off because she was spending like there was no tomorrow. I feel we are doing her no favours by bailing her out constantly. She needs to learn to manage her money and live on her own as its by her own choice. My husband differs and we argue about this a lot. Case in point, he was to oversee her selection of a cell phone. He suggested something reasonable...she went whole hog on a blackberrry with unlimited and long distance. HELP! How do I get my husband to see that our daughter needs to grow up and learn to live on her own?
