A couple of weeks ago we started a 529 plan for our son.  I was recently sent a link to this youtube video and I was ROFL by far I fear more about the damage that I can cause my child then education sometimes.  Sure I’m ok when it comes to math, history, and science… I’ll get him tutors for english (god knows I could use them too) but I think about the bigger issues and this makes me laugh.  Perhaps its time to start saving for therapy because that’s something we all could use!

I would love to talk about 529 college education funds but really I barely understand them myself.  I just know its important to start saving for college because in 16/17 years from now the price of college will be roughly $70-80 thousand a year unless something dramatic changes in this country.
