What is your "plan" for when your kids graduate high school?

DH and I plan on our kids going to college, and we will allow them to live with us rent free for as long as they are in college, but they will need to hold a part time job. If they don't go to college they can only stay with us, for free, for 6 months, after which they can move out or pay rent. Either way they will have certain rules to follow also.

So do you have a plan for your kids after high school?

    Yeah I understand that lol. Dh and I grew up watching our siblings take advantage of our parents. Living there for free until they were well into their 20s, not working, being disrespectful. We just wanted a what if plan. KWIM?

    It's all hypothetical at this point. DD is ten, but says she wants to live with us. I asked about what she'd do if we moved far away, and she said she'd come with us if I promised to pay for her tickets to fly and visit with her dad sometimes. And she doesn't think she should have to pay rent, but she has an idea that when she's a grown up she should help us pay all the bills. I got very worried about all this. But my huband keeps saying she's ten and nothing that she's saying is really set in stone.

    The oldest is heading off to college this year with the next two not to far behind. The third wants to join the military which we support.

    We encourage our kids to get out in the world after graduation.

    She can live here if she is in college.

    If not on her 18th birthday she is out...and she doesn't get her trust.
