Someone just asked me if I was saving for my kids to go to college. I said no and she looked at me like I was dumb as rocks. Of course I'll help them while they're in college but I do not plan on paying for college. I know there are programs out there designed for parents to put money away for college but they come with a few stipulations that I think would take away from my kids choices. Also I'm a DV, there are quite a few programs out there that offer scholarships for DV children. The price of a college education keeps rising, even if I started now, how can I be sure I could really pay for it all without having to mortgage my house and take out loans?
I honestly would prefer them to go fully knowing that I will not be paying but will support in any other way I can.
