Re: Paying for college
I'm on the fence about helping out with my children's college.
Once I moved out after high school, I paid for everything...tuition, books, rent, utilities, car insurance, food...EVERYTHING. Though I do recall my parents paying a $200 bill once for getting my car fixed, but that's it. I got a bachelor's degree, then a J.D. (law school), and then a teaching certificate. DH paid for everything as soon as he graduated high school and has a bachelor's and a teaching certificate. Both of us are very good with money, and I'm sure it has to do with being responsible for our own finances so early.
I think we are going to start putting some money into savings for them, but starting next year, I'll be staying home, and DH will be earning a teacher's salary, so not very much.
