I'd be sleeping right now, but this thought is preventing me from doing so. I think it's because I recently read some stuff about changes in student loan rates. I had a conversation with a friend not too long ago and the conversation about parents paying for college came up. We were talking about the college campus nearby and wondering how much it would cost to attend it since it looked like a nice place and there was so much stuff to do. He stated that he would make his kids pay for their stuff when they turned eighteen. He wouldn't buy them a car unless it was dirt cheap and he would make them pay for their college expenses on their own. My parents paid for a portion of my college education before stating that I would either have to take out loans or work on my own. Here's my question, do you think parents should continue to look after their children's education after high school? Why? And do you think that your own struggles factors a lot into your perspective? My friend never received help from his parents for any of his expenses, so that probably factored into his opinion.
