I think it is great that she is thinking about their future too, kids get enough toys and junk for the holidays, putting away for their future is a good move, good for her, it will help them in the long run.

I agree with LT and good. She is doing a commendable job. In today's world when we are moving so fast, we do not even know what is going to happen next. Securing the future and investing for the future is the best gift one can offer. I am sure her children will understand the worth. In fact erb mentioned time spend as well. Thats what we lack these days. Spending quality time with each other. Big deal huh!!!

I spend as much time as possible with our child, I think it shows when it comes to holidays the most. She only wanted one thing for christmas this year, she is only four but she would rather bake and give to others. She is a sweet girl, hope she stays this way.

So, I come to this forum for many reasons, I would like to address them one at a time, My 18 year old is graduating this year and wants to go to college, she started applying in hopes to get accepted to the bigger four year university that we have near us, we have some smaller ones around us, but I want here to have the best chance of getting the best opportunity the first time around, so I am willing to sacrifice and help her as much as I can.

She has always been a good student, she has great attendance, good grades and is involved in community activities. I have always pushed my children to stay involved and to give back where they can. Explaining to them that their time is worth more than money. Hoping that this will make them good connections and that this will pay off later in life, they will be remembered for what they have left behind in their communities. I want my kids to stay in there communities and work, continue to build on the roots that they have laid down since they were young children.

My daughter wants to go into social work, we have done our homework and know that these are not necessarily the best paying jobs, but the reward of helping people would be a fulfilling part of her career. She is not a child of extravagance, she is not easily influenced by the grand things in life. She is a happy, healthy person.

I read through this thread and got a ton of good information from it, what a wealth of great information. I am really glad that I found this forum, it will help me find more help than I ever expected with her college. I am going to look into the upromise for my younger child, got a long time to go and a long time to save for that one.

I am hoping that her grants and some of the scholarships that she has gotten from local organizations will cover most of her expenses. She will work through a program called work study too while she goes to school. I am sure we will learn more as she gets more involved at the university about opportunities for her to save and earn for credits and tuition.

august you seem to be a wonderful human being and a great mother. I'm sure your children will grow up to be amazing individuals. You know what? More than money or your sacrifice, your inspiration will make them achieve what they want to.
I hope i can do the same for my sister. I am working on it and have started taking opinions from all the forum participants.

Laura,

I am sure that your are doing a great job with your sister, you always write such good posts that explain what you are doing with her. August and you have some things in common when it comes to the kids, you both sound like excellent role models, and I am sure that the kids influenced by you two are having a great start to a wonderful future and two really great adults that they can come back to if they trip up.

Laura and August..Sounds like the two of you are doing right by your sister and children. Too many times parents get wrapped up in their own daily lives and struggles and the child is overlooked. I was once told that a child is like a tree...when they are young you can bend and shape them to grow in the right direction but once they mature they are difficult to retrain to "grow" the right way. Good luck even though it doesn't sound like either of you need it.

My kid will get grants because she was once a ward of the state, she was in foster care before we adopted her, so they will kick in quite a bit if she chooses to go to college as long as it is a state university.

That is really good for her jbarto. I wish they would amke more programing funds possible for these children. It is great to see that just because they got off to a bad start things don't have to stay that way. My sister is doing foster care herself and I have met some pretty good kids through her. It always leaves such a sadness in my heart though. I can not figure people out theses days. I thought about it but I think it takes a stronger person than I am. I think it would kill me to send a child back to a home that wasn't any good for them. My sister in law is also in foster care and she has adopted a sibling group of 4. Since adopting them their mother has had one she left drown in a toilet and another on the way. I asked my sister in law why the sstate couldn't step in and make her get fixed and she said she asked that question herself and it is against the mothers rights to do that. Well didn't she lose those rights when she chose drugs over her first four children. Gosh this is such a sore point with me. Anyway thank you for taking a child in and calling her your daughter. I am sure you mean this in every sense of the way. You should be VERY proud of yourself.

You must be a lucky parent and she must be too lucky as well. Hope we see her shine as she grows up. good luck.

She is starting kindergarten here this year, I have worked with her since we got her at 8 months, she will be the youngest in her class but she tested right up there with the older kids.

I do a lot with her, take every opportunity to learn things, like with baking, we count the eggs, measure the water, the oil, anything can be turned into a math project.

That is what we all have to do these days good natured. they have raised the bar really high for our kids in the education system. My girl is in 6 grade and she is doing stuff I didn't do till years later. Sometimes I feel it is to much because although most students can handle it it leaves the ones who are struggling by no fault of their own to be pushed off the education railroad.

Well, I see people everyday who are recent graduates that can not read or write to save their lives, I think this is a failure of the education system. They are pushed through and not ready for the world of work at all, it is just sad.
