Do you plan to pay for your kids college?

All of it? Most of it? Any of it?

Will you let your kids live with you if they are in college full time?

How do you plan to do that? What kind of savings do you have in place? Do you work?

 We don't pay for college.  I send my kids to the best private school in the area, a school that amassed 1.3 million dollars in scholarship money for last years graduating seniors, only 80 kids, so if they can't get their piece of the pie through academics, after I invest so much, then they can pay their own college.

I will pay as much as I can. I've had education accounts since they were little but the cost is astronomical. They can live on campus or with me depending on where they go.

 We will not be paying for their college, no. Helping where we can, yes.

I will pay for their books, and if they are close enough to home to stay here they can but they can get scholarships and loans for the school part.
