This girl I know who has been in foster care since she was 8 told me since she has been in foster care for ten years the government is going to pay for her living expenses and college. Now, she is kind of on the slow side, and it becomes clear to you when you have a conversation with her. I don't mean to be mean but I think that is ridiculous. She is clearly not the college type and I don't think it is worth the money for her to get a college education.. wow that sounds bad..but you know what I mean?
Edit: Ok what I mean is, if she wants to go to college that's great, having financial aide is great, I think it's fine if she gets SSI or something, but having EVERYTHING paid for is crazy to me, especially if she has a higher chance of not passing through college anyway?
EDITTTT:: I DID NOT say she should get NO help at all..I said she shouldn't have EVERYTHING paid for. That is it.
New edit : Ok you guys convinced me otherwise, yeah you are right about since she turned 18 what's she supposed to do right away? It is good that she is getting help in the first few years of her adult life to get her on her feet.
