Tough for you too. I agree 100 percent with your views in this thread. The fund for our kids college is mature and ready . . . early. They don't know it and won't. Our 16 yr old boy is incredibly responsible. He has ten thousand in the bank he earned by himself reffing soccer. Our girl on the other hand, sounds like yours. Extremely intelligent with grades in the high 90's but it's a battle to keep her to it. Changes her mind often. Work is a four letter word to her.
