it is hard for kids at that age to save money. money in the pocket is money spent. at our age we undersand the significance of money and saving, but to them the amount of money they haveto save seems too huge for them to accomplish so they get to thinking- well why start, when the goal can never be accomplished. unless they already have another means of help, they already have a great understanding of how much money is needed for college. helping her out at her age, she probably isnt sure what she wants to do. my oldest just turned 20, graduated,and is a very smart person with computers, math, numbers, and other things, but is undecided, and altho works a full timejob, refuses to save for a car or place of his own, or even college, because he is unsure of where to get started. either you can be patient with your child, or they are too unbearable and have tobe sent to the wilderess to wake up their senses. that choice is yours.
