Parent wants in-laws to finance kids’ higher education – Chicago Tribune

Dear Amy: My husband and I are parents to three college-age children. All three are good students who attend flagship state universities. Of course, as parents, we think they are great and well-rounded young adults. They have never given us a lick of trouble and have no trouble speaking and holding conversations with other adults, teachers, bosses, etc.

We own our own home and drive old cars, but still struggle to pay our kids’ tuition. We have saved money since our children were small to help defray their university costs, but even with the kids each taking $5,000 per year in loans it is still a struggle.

My in-laws have always recognized birthdays and Christmas with modest gifts, and they always compliment us on how we raised them. That’s the problem!

We recently became aware that the in-laws have already given tens of thousands of dollars to a local junior college foundation!
