Without spilling my life story, I'll keep this simple and too the point .....
I'm in my early 30's, married with kids.
I'm currently in school finishing my red seal apprenticeship and I've never EVER asked for money from either my (divorced) parents for schooling or education. I never took any post secondary education as it took me 10 more years to figure out my interest.
.......... In the last couple of years classmates of younger and similar age to me seem to have had, or are having, their parents help out in some fashion with the direct related bills or fees associated with school. (Tuition, books, test fees etc....)
... so now the question.
Are your, or have your parents willingly paid for schooling in full of in part?
I'm not bitter or looking to get even. I just seem to be in the minority regarding financial backing from parents. Even my inlaws have made comments about helping out.
