Yes and no. I save all their bonds, which total at least 1000 a kid.



But Pats Dad puts aside money every month, enough for a full ride per child to a University by the time they are 18.

They do have state programs where you can pay current tuition now and when your child gets college age gets to go at the rate it was when you paid it 18 years ago.
But, if your child wants to go to college outside of the state, you're kind of fucked.

not yet, we really need to put some money away, but we won't do one that is an actual school fund, we want them to be able to use the money for school, but if they get scholarships or something, they can use the money for whatever without penalty

Yeah in michigan it's called MET. I guess they can go out of state cause I asked once but it doesn't cover all of it. Whatever. That's why we didn't do it. Plus we don't have the money to pay her tuition today haha. We're still paying our tuition :)

Honestly, I am going to encourage my children to go to a community college first to get their general ed done if they don't know what they want to do yet.



I dont care so much that they even GO to college, I just want them to do something they love and be able to make a decent living for themselves.



I am about to graduate from a community college with my RN with absolutely no debt, and make the same as someone who graduated from a 4 yr school... about $50,000 -$60,000 a year starting out.



I just want to be able to give them a little something to be able to start out with. They need to know how to work for what they want to :)

12K a year?



6K per child? Are they close to college days or something?

No they are 4 and 4 months. But college is expensive and I would never want my children entering their adult life in debt. We fully intend on paying all their education.

Welp I'm sure they'll have enough to get 3 bachelor's degrees by the time they turn 18!

Not nessisaely. What if they go to private school? My tution for college was 42k . What if they want to go to grad school? I don't think skimping on education is worth it.
