  • If it's a better option than whatever you can afford, absolutely! Education is very important, why not give your child the best possible opportunities? But yes, I probably would get it in writing, just so there are no misunderstandings, heh.

  • I would def get it in writing on the off chance he tries to back out so your not left to pay for something you can't afford.

  • Yes of course. If ANYBODY offered to give my child a better education, I would take advantage of it. I don't see the need to get it in writing though. It is a gift, not a business deal. If some day he decides not to pay for it anymore, then you would just have to deal with that and switch schools. You wont be stuck with a bill, you usually have to pay prior to the school year or be set up on 10 month payments.

  • Of course I would. You said "your" meaning the child's grandfather right? Or did I read that wrong? Really, if someone offered to pay for it, you bet I would be all over it. Of course, I would make a deal like in Gilmore Girls, where I paid them back, or had weekly dinners with them or something. It's a better future for the child, and that's what really matters.

  • If its the best option, in terms of quality of service, I would! :)

  • *quality of education, I mean, lol, sorry

  • It would depend on my relationship with my my family the strings that came attached to offers like that was not worth it to me.
