A New Job

July 27th, 2008 at 05:35 am

My daughter finally found a job. Hurray!!! I say this b/c she will have to stop asking me for money and hopefully become more responsible about paying for things herself. Hopefully freeing up some money for some needed savings.
DD started her new job last Saturday she works very long hours but gets paid very well. Starting in Sept. when she goes back to school she will cut back to 3 days a week. Oh did I mention that she will also have to be responsible for her own tuition? I had promised her a long time ago that her Dad and I would pay for 4 years of college anything above and beyond that would be her responsibility same as her brother and sister. All three kids had to get their 4 year college degree it was the law here. Being that we made it the law we didn't think that they should have to pay for our request. Anyway the 2 older ones are doing great. MY youngest is taking a little bit longer to get on her feet. She graduated this May from the university. By her getting this job is a huge step in the right direction. And her paying her own tuition this year( she will be continuing on to specialize her degree) is also really big. I am so proud of her.

    So I guess it is exciting, satisfying, and a relief to see your kids become self-supporting.

    You sound like my mom. Luckily, scholarships took care of most of my 4-year education, I paid some and my parents helped with the rest. My parents always promised they'd get me a bachelor's degree, but anything higher, I was on my own.

    Thats what my parents did. They paid tutition and some rent for all 4 yrs undergrad, and I paid for grad school myself. Out of state decision for undergrad, wisely decided to get in state prices when I paid myself. Smile

    Because she is paying her tuition herself from here on in, she will be going to state school. And it is pretty cool watching her figure things out on her own.
