There were six kids in my family- three boys and three girls. My dad helped all three of my brothers with college, and none of us girls. When I graduated HS, I had a 3.95 GPA. Two out of three of my brothers barely graduated at all. But he helped all three of them figure out where to go to school, what to study, how to pay for it, EVERYTHING. Only one of them actually uses his degree. It was just how things were. It never even occurred to me how horrible this was until I was in my thirties, divorced, trying to raise two kids, go to college, and work full time. I made it, though. So to speak. My sisters, not so much. One died of a drug overdose, the other lives in a homeless shelter with a nearby methadone clinic. Halfway across the country. At least that's where she was living last I heard. I don't have contact with her. And Debt? LOL! I'd be long dead before I'd be able to pay back the student debt. So yeah, please don't do this to your kids. It's so wrong.
