My parents and Tim's are firm believers that the student should pay for college, and we feel similarly. But, we are saving money for both kids. What my dad did was teach me how to save and invest money (I didn't listen well, but now I remember the lessons and it helps!) and when I turned 18 the money I had saved and invested was mine to use however I wanted. Of course, I didn't use it well and I'm sure he was disappointed, but I lived and learned. We are doing something similar for our kids.

Maureen - I'm not hip on paying for a wedding either. We will pay for part of a wedding, but not the whole thing. That goes for all kids, boys and girls.
