Default Re: Teen Sues Parents for Cash, College Tuition. Does She Have a Case?

She's 18, she's an adult, GET A JOB AND PAY FOR YOUR SHIT YOURSELF! My Mom helped me fill out the paperwork for financial aid but my parents didn't pay my way through anything and I'm grateful for it because I developed a strong work ethic and sense of individual accomplishment. These kids that have everything handed to them on a silver platter, this is what you get when you spoil them rotten and hand them everything. I'd of been telling her to start applying for jobs at 16. It's apparent she hasn't worked a day in her life as she's living with a friend (mooching, no surprise) when she could be working AND going to school.

I graduated High School and went up to college in a town I'd never lived in or even heard of before. It was for a two year Associate's Degree and I worked the majority of the time I was in college. I was working nights, evenings, and day shifts in between going to classes and volunteering on the local fire department. These college kids whose parents pay for everything and they don't even have to work a single day while going to school... And some people wonder why work ethic is sorely lacking in today's society.
