Do you expect to have control over things like where, when and if they work, where the live (on campus or off), where they go (what school) or what they major in?
I ask because a lot of the reasons I chose not to go to school (which I don't regret) was because my mother wanted complete control over all my choices...
I plan on letting my kids make these choices for themselves. I do expect that they keep their grades decent, but only because I see no reason to pay for schooling if you aren't going to actually learn...
What about you?

I think this all depends on so many factors... I plan on helping my kids with these choices. A lot of it will depend on where they go to school. The only thing I insist on if they want to live in my house is that they go to college and keep their grades up enough to stay there!!!
