University/college? They will each have a college fund that we are saving threwout the years until they are 18. But after that its up to them to get a job and get loans. Should be enough money saved up for the first year at least.

Liviing expenses? May help with rent, depends.

What about a car as a teenager? No. I was almost 21 before I got my van I paid for it myself and I also had to pay for my driving lessons myself, it was 600 bucks and I was a single mom living on my own, it sure was tough but I did it. I want to teach my kids the same thing I learned, you should not depend on anyone else for money. If you want something you need to work for it.

Cell phone bill? Absoutly not.

Clothes? No way, clothes as gift for birthdays and christmas.

I may sound mean but I will help my kids out if they turley need it but I will not let them use us for everything, they need to learn how to do it themselves
