I hear all of you who had it rough to get through college. I did as well. I have lived on my own since I was 17 and paid for bachelors, masters and currently doctoral degrees on my own. Having said that, it isn't 'wrong', or 'spoonfeeding', or any of the other derogatory descriptors to help your children achieve their goals. It simply means you love your children AND you are fortunate enough to have the means to do it.
If he were not in school full time and working 2 part time jobs-believe me, I wouldn't be helping.
And TrixieBelle-you can say all you want that you are not bitter-but the fact that you consider helping your children to be 'spoon-feeding' them says a lot about the bitterness.
Sister Ruby is wrong. Health insurance is optional unless you are an undergraduate foreign student or you are enrolled in an undergraduate program that specifically requires health insurance. Read it at the Board of Regents or VSU websites.
No, he does not live at home and is pretty self-sufficient. We believe in encouraging children who are trying to better themselves. Sorry, but your post sounds like sour grapes to me.
My son will be 25 soon. He is in grad school full time and will graduate next month. He is a 3.8 GPA scholar in a challenging program, and he works 2 part time jobs to supplement the allowance we provide for him every month. Any of you who think he has no 'work ethic' or that we 'baby' him don't know what you're talking about. I am happy and it is right that we are still able to provide health insurance for him.
Well now...it took longer than I thought it would for someone to decide it's Obama's fault, LOL...you RWNJ's are slowing down.
The Gieryics are great folks and I used to get gas and repairs there when I lived in Hellbany. Glad I don't live there anymore and I'm sorry they are being treated like this. It's really inexcusable...but let's place the blame where it belongs, folks.
It's beyond dramatic, patrick2K, its ridiculous. VSU, for instance, has the Baptist Student Union, Campus Outreach, Canterbury Club (Episcopal), chi Alpha, Christian Student Center (Church of Christ), Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, First United Methodist Church outreach, Presbyterian Campus Ministry, St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church outreach, Wesley Foundation (Methodist) and Valdosta Christian Church (non-denominational).
That enough Christians for ya, Squawker and Momof3?
