I believe that the sooner our kids can leave the nest and stand on their own the better it will be for them in the long run. Part of loving your kids well is to help them to make that transition.
As parents, we are compelled to take care of our kids in every possible way. For most of us, that includes covering the expenses of a college education. Education is critical to success in the market place and typically college graduates tend to have more options for employment. So the question is not: should you pay for your children’s college costs; the question is how to best accomplish that goal without putting your future or the future of your kids in jeopardy.
