How will I put them all through college?

A common misconception in our society is that parents are obligated to pay for their children’s college.  Every financial adviser my husband and I have talked to has questioned our plans in this regard.  Parenting magazines (whatever they’re worth) offer tips to save for it.  Complete strangers who find out we’re still planning on having […]
