Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" Oh I plan to HELP my child with college, but I also plan to teach her to be responsible enough to WANT ... [snip!] ... expenses. After my child is a legal adult, she can help pay for her own education. Adults need to try and act like adults. "
I see higher education as being just as important as food and water. That's the way I was bought up. There are loads of other ways to teach those attributes. Make her buy her own car...her on computer...her own laptop. That's enough to teach responsibilty of having to provide for yourself. College education is very important and should not be toyed with by saying "here's your chance to be an adult". I'm sorry you feel differently. If playing with your daughter's future is the way you chose to teach her responsibilty, That's your choice. Your opinion. Good for you.
Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" My parents didn't play with my future. I graduate in a year, near the top of my class, with a degree ... [snip!] ... her schooling. But we want her to do her BEST to pay for as much of it as she can on her own, with scholarships, grants, etc. "
Good for you. I don't fit into that study as I try hard anyway. I guess since my education has been paid for by my parents my entire life basically, college was no change for me. :) My son will never have to worry about tuition if I can help it.
Holy c**t-nuggets batman!
What a closed minded, pathetic, LONELY read that was...someone needs some dick...

You obviously have nothing of value to add to the discussion but I guess Someone just needed something to say.
That describes me to a T! Congrats.
I'll now go back to replying to only the replies that show even the slightest shred of intelligence.
Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" Then we were simply raised with different ideals. My parents never let me think that ANYTHING was a guarantee, even school. So I learned to work hard to get where I want to go in life. "
Yup. If I ever wanted to get my masters or doctorate, I'd pay for myself. But my bachelors is all the parents.
Quoting I ♥ Mike Hunt:" :D Wow..who said I was talking about you? I could be talking about any one of the women in this thread. ... [snip!] ... to contribute except for what I choose. Reply to who you want, I wasn't hoping the she-b***h was going to reply anyways. "
Quoting Isaiah & Delilah's Mama:" One just happens to be a b***h saying crap. I feel sorry for girls like you, who think they need to be a snob in life."
Okay. Good for you.
Quoting Isaiah & Delilah's Mama:" Very good for me, I'd rather be a SAHM and have a good attitude in life and be kind to others, than be a BIG CAREER woman and be mean to others. It's not a good look, trust me ;)"
Awesome. :lol: Notice you're the only one still going on about this?
Quoting Isaiah & Delilah's Mama:" Yep :) Notice you keep replying? Makes you just as bad :D"
I never said it made you bad though...
I always reply.
