Parents wish a happy, successful life for their children. Many hope that their children will go to college as a step in the right direction, and they think about how they can guide their children toward that dream. However, few really plan for that day. So, when the time comes and the child is college bound, the parents are often feeling financially strapped.
However, planning for college is more than finances. In fact, you are planning for a life-altering event for your child and for you. It often means a change of location for the student, a change in friends, and a change in lifestyle . . . even a change in attitude. It’s a whole new world, and good preparation will enhance your child’s opportunity for success.
