RE: 22-year-old college student blows her $90,000 college fund and blames her parents
My parents really hooked me up with regards to paying for university. I had a trust they started when I was born. Whenever I earned my own money from 12-18 or got it for a birthday gift, I had to give them half. They would put that in the trust. In the end, all my tuition throughout my entire 4 years was covered by that trust. Scholarships i received went to housing, books, food.

At the time I didn't know it and thought they were just assholes. Really it helped me out a lot and I'm doing something similar with my kids.

Parents should have controlled the fund and allocated tuition fees and a monthly spending allowance into her account.

Could have avoided the entire thing by not going to college. I'm surprised the main stream hasnt caught onto how worthless a college degree is now.

I probably shouldn't say this - but one of my concerns about kids I do not have yet, is that they are stupid.

Not saying she was smart with her money or that she isn't an ignorant basic ass bitch, but as sad as it is, $90k will not afford you a 4-year degree with room and board at an average out-of-state public college.

So move to the state you want to go to school at, work for a year, and get in-state tuition. Or go to community college for the first two years which is drastically cheaper. Or join the military and have uncle sam pay for it afterwards. There are a lot of options.

This chick is certainly no Einstein, but I mostly blame the parents in this particular circumstance. Just make sure to teach your children the value of a dollar.
