Education Is Expensive

I am worried about money. I am not what you would call poor but education is getting more and more expensive each day. I just need to find different avenues of making money to enable my kids to further their education and give them the qualifications they need.

The problem seem to be that I am ambitious. I want to give them something better than what I had which is a local degree. i know that this can be done as I firmly believe that education is not merely a paper qualification by the exposure to a wide range of experiences.

Unfortunately, I have little faith in the local educational institutions. I am hoping the kids will get financial aid or at least student loans to allow them to take the next step forward.

I am always thinking about this and worrying about the future. I have my prayers to calm myself and can only hope for the best. I do wonder if all parents feel like this.

My friends tell me to let the kids chart their own journey. I cannot be always be there for them. i know this and to be fair to the kids they demand nothing from me. It is just he way I am.

Today I have been looking at bank rates and fixed deposit rates and am wondering if I should put my money in another bank for better rates. I have decided not to. i need to calm down and keep on writing. Slowly I know I can build a name for myself as a writer of calibre. Writing helps me focus on the task at hand and not to worry about things that I have no control over. Writing also calms me especially writing on this platform and sharing my worries with my friends. Somehow I know I am not the only parent with money worries and this too will pass.

Somehow things move and a future is laid in front of everyone but not without worrying.

I hope you get what you need out of writing, but moreover, I hope you find a good financial resource for your children's future education.

I will always be very grateful to my parents for getting me through college with no student loans--they understood how crushing that kind of debt can be.

Yes, education is and has always been expensive. My parents had to cosign for loans when I first went off to college. After I served almost 4 years in the Navy, I was entitled to educational benefits for going back to school. There is education which you can get online which can be a little cheaper than the regular school education. Good luck in the education planning for your children.

Yes, the cost of an education is not getting cheaper. There are grants, pell grants and loans but a person can only get so much to help further their lives and career.

Education is expensive. I worry about my children too. So many questions come to mind when I think about putting them through school. I wish it wasn't so expensive.

It is true. Education can certainly be expensive. I hope that you are able to save and help with your kids' education.
