Is it parents' responsibility to pay for kids' college?



Is it really the responsibility of the parents to pay for their children's college when they grow up? Why or why not?

I would say yes, but only if the parents have good reasons to believe that said path in College would lead to their child's future career prospects being fruitful.

Also, I believe it would be a kid's responsibility to work hard towards their paid for education.

Isn't this expected? I went to College almost for free, but my parents always said they saved up money for me to use for it.

Unless you're working a part time job, there's no way anyone can afford College at only 18-22. When you're that young what kind of money do you expect to have in the bank?

I paid for my own. Worked full time through both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I come from a poor family. If I wanted better I had to do it myself. So I did.
