I want to tell my granddaughter to just grow up. She went to college for a year or so and ended up owing some student loans and now is moaning and complaining about having to pay them back. She wants "loan forgiveness". And then she goes on to complain about the older people who had loans and paid them back and are telling her to just pay them back . . . blah blah blah. As far as I am concerned, her college loans are no different than car loans, house loans, etc. You sign the loan document . . . you are responsible to pay the loan back. If you don't want student loans, then either get a job and save until you have enough cash . . . or apply for scholarships and grants that don't need to be paid back. I am so sick of young people complaining about how tough they have it. Most of them don't even know the true meaning of the word "tough". I went to college. I had a scholarship for tuition. I worked a full-time job at the same time to pay for other things like books, clothing, food, rent, etc. I have children who went to college. They took out loans but had to work also . . . they never took out the "extra" money available for living expenses. They either have paid off the loans or are still paying on them. We were unable to help our children . . . we just didn't have the money. And, we certainly can't help our grandchildren. Young people just need to toughen up and grow up. Life isn't filled with music, parties, nice cars, nice clothes, boyfriends/girlfriends, and having a good time.
