I don't know if I clarified this, but I'm only in college part time, as I have a full time career. I go Monday through Friday from 8am to 9:50am.
Waking up early is no stranger to me. But WALKING is I guess. Cause by 10am,I am falling asleep at my computer. Man, wouldn't it be nice to be 18 with a full ride..when I can nap whenever I want? Just go to class, make friends, sleep and have fun.
That wasn't in the cards for me though. I'm not sad or bitter about it. My parents did the best they could and I made my decisions.
I just wonder which is the best way to go with my own kids. Of course, my husband and I are saving for 'college' for our kids. College in quotation marks because I don't believe in forcing anyone to go to college. I want my kids to know that they have the opportunity but if they decide to go to trade school or back pack through Europe or any direction they would like to go, it's okay. I'm just a little perplexed on how much support is healthy. Hypothetically speaking, let's say we have the means to pay for everything....Car, gas, living expenses, college, senior trip, etc. SHOULD we? And is there a cut off date?
