Many children will not really care how much money is spent unless there really is something in it for him/her to compensate for their "loss." It's not in them. Most can't comprehend the magnitude of money given away forever, since I really can't, either. Except the sickening feeling when making the transaction. The outrageous and escalating prices cause such a struggle and sacrifice for many families. Our kids are good and we want them to be happy and go to a great school, campus, etc. We are weak, and just give it away, hoping not to regret it; that some disaster does not happen where you really should have kept it. And after all that struggle, because you can't shake money out of your house, or keep selling off some of your disaster funds, your child also has a small mountain of debt looming over them at the start of their lives instead of being free and clear. And you feel guilty even after all you went through! Will it cost $90,000-$100,000 in twenty years? When will they stop? Or, they know there is always someone out there who will pay for their only son or only daughter. LOL How about- Occupy Expensive Colleges! Just a joke. I would never occupy someone else's property.
