One of the things that I wanted for my children was the ability to travel and see parts of the world that I had never seen. My husband and I worked hard and saved and we were able to send our children on some great trips provided for students. They didn’t stay in Ritz-Carlton types of facilities but they were able to visit many continents and countries that I have never been able to visit (and may never be able to visit). The “payment” we expected was that they would study hard, stay out of trouble, and pursue a career in which they could be financially independent and stable. How did we do?
