Do you think you should only have children if you can afford to pay for their schooling? Or is it okay to have children, save what you can to help them, but then expect them to get a student loan if they want to goto college?
I have tons of friends who got student loans, I actually don't know anyone who had their full tuition paid for by their parents.
What do you think?

We'll help our kids whatever way we can but we won't be paying their tuitions. They'll have to get scholarships, grants and loans for that. IF they want to go to college. I watched my dad go into bankruptcy trying to pay for me and my brother to go to college. He felt it was his job as the parent and it ruined him. He's still paying for stuff from back then. I got loans after my first semester and they have since been paid off but I purposefully picked a school that was affordable. Even with out of state tuition and room and board it was only like $9000 for the year. Whereas my brother picked his favorite school and it was $20k for his first year. He only went 1 year and will be paying off his loans for the rest of his life it seems.

My tuition was paid in full by my dad. I won't be able to afford that luxury for my own kids, for DH and I will never bring home what my dad brought home income wise. We will help them as best we can. I see nothing wrong with student loans.
