“As parents we want whats best for our children, and we do whatever it takes to see that they are happy and successful, risking and trying anything to ensure the viability of their future, to the point of going into debt for their sake. It would not be a surprise if you knew someone in that exact situation, or if you yourself are facing such a dilemma. It is an all too familiar story with families and their bank accounts all across the world. While rearing a child is an expensive, hefty task, sending a child to school- or even multiple children- is an even bigger challenge.
The cost of living and of taking care of your familys health and yours is not the same as it was in the past; moreover, the cost of education today is very different from what your generation had to pay. The numbers are staggering just take a look at this infographic on the case of college student debt in the United States. Students graduating today hold an average of $25,000 in student debt, and that number is rising. To get your family financially prepared, and if you need debt advice, there are great sites that can help you with managing debt and ensuring your child has a stable financial future.” ~ Maxine
