Quoting owl0210: I will pay as much as I can and then they can take out loans to finance the rest. Hopefully they will receive scholarships too.
My kids can live at home and we'll pay for food and stuff like that, with no rent/help with bills expected. BUT, they have to pay for their classes/books. We will help when and where we can, but it will fall mainly to them.
We pay. We have enough that we can, and we feel it's very important. All tuition, books, living expenses (we encourage them to go away to college - they all have). Cell phone, internet, clothes, whatever.
As they get close to graduating, we encourage them to scout out jobs. Yes, we will help them a bit when they're first starting out - but then they're on their own. If they choose not to go to college - all funds stop.
