Although that statement makes perfect CollegeLogical Sense, far too many parents take the approach- "My child deserves it, I'll find a way to pay..." How many times have you heard that? I've heard it hundreds of times, and particularly so during this time of year when college decisions are being made.
Let's be blunt here, no one's child "deserves" to have their parents bankrupt the family finances over their college costs.
Step # 1 for Preventing Family Pressure and Discontent at college decision time is-
Prequalify your college budget one year in advance
Step # 2 for Preventing Family Pressure and Discontent at college decision time is-

This is the ultimate cost saving strategy. Follow it and you can avoid tense family discussion and discontentment within the ranks when the time comes to make the right college choose.
