Our only child Kate is entering her junior year of college. She is doing very well and averaging a 3.8 while carrying more than a full course load to graduate early.
Her dad and I invested over the years and her college fund is healthy and should last until she graduates. He controls the money and Kate lives at home and works during the summers and breaks to save money.
Last month Kate casually mentioned that she was going to get a tattoo on her wrist in memory of her best friend who died last year in a car wreck. Both her father and I think this is a terrible idea, but her dad has told her he would stop funding her college education if she gets the tattoo.
