Do you feel like you appreciate your education any less than one who had to take out loans and pay for it themselves? I hear this a lot. "I won't pay for my kids education in full, for I want them to be MORE appreciative of it."
My dad paid for me in full, and I am completely appreciative of the education I received. I am so very thankful for him being able to do that for me as well. I don't feel like I was handed anything, for I still had to BUST MY ASS to earn that degree. The money alone didn't get me the education and degree. I WORKED for it.
I honestly think people who feel that way simply had to pay for their own way in college. They just ASSume one who gets a free education is less appreciative. They shouldn't think that, for it just isn't true for all of us.

I paid for a very small portion of my education. My parents paid for most of it. Plus I had a nice scholarship. While I appreciate the education. I didn't bust my butt for it. I coasted through and was glad to get out with my 2.6 gpa. We are insisting that our kids maintain a gpa to get money from us for school. It just doesn't make sense to pay for them to party for 4 years.
