How to Save $10K/yr or More on Your Child’s College Education

Here are the details of our free Teleseminar:

This is just some of what you will learn:

  • Why having a college savings fund is worse than gambling it all away in Las Vegas (at least in Las Vegas you have a chance to win.)
  • 3 ways you can get money for college, even if you have $10,000,000 in assets (income is not a factor)
  • How the top private schools in the country ($55K/yr tuition) can cost less than your local state college

And a lot more.

If you use just 10% of what you will hear, you will save yourself thousands of dollars on your child’s education.

Let’s be clear about this; the cost of college education is skyrocketing.

The average state school now costs $20,000/year. And if your child wants to go to a top university it can cost $55,000/year or more.

But what do you get for this money?


The first thing you should realize is that you shouldn’t expect your child to spend just 4 years at his 4-year university. The average college student takes 5.8 years to finish his four-year degree. That means instead of planning for $80-$220,000 you better set aside between $116-$319,000.

And what exactly do you get for your money? Where will your child be when he graduates 5.8 years later?

Well, if he is like most college graduates he’ll be living at home with you. 80% of college graduates move back in with their parents for 6 months until they can land some job that pays more than working at Starbucks.

How does all this sound to you? If you are planning to send your child to college in the next decade, this is probably going to be your and your child’s future.

Unless…

You do something about it, now.

How would you like to ensure that your child:

  • Graduates college 1 ½ years earlier than most college students
  • Pays one half to 1/5 of what other students are paying for his education
  • Graduates with a job in his career choice waiting for him

I am going to show you how you can do all of this, and it will only cost you about an hour of your time.

This Thursday evening I will be interviewing the leading college planning expert in the United States and he is going to tell you how to do these things and more.

I am still waiting for the exact details, but I wanted to let you know early so that you block out some time on your schedule. Frankly, I can’t think of anything else you can do Thursday evening that will have such far reaching effects on your personal finances and your child’s future.

This is what you need to do now. The official registration form is not ready yet.

P S I want to stress to you that what you are going to learn on this call really works.

I did not know what you are about to learn this week, but I did figure out one thing on my own. Here are my results:

I am sending my 19 year old to one of the top private schools in the country and it costs me about $250/month. There are no future loans to pay off.

Best of all, he is way ahead of the curve. By the beginning of his third year he has already finished the classes that are relevant to his career choice and he was given permission to design his own program from now on.

He is not going to be one of those kids sitting around for five years in college wondering what he is going to be doing with his life.

Pretty impressive for a child who was labeled “learning disabled” in first grade.

  • Proper measures must be taken to ensure that [children] shall be tactful and courteous in their address; for nothing is so deservedly disliked as tactless characters. —”The Education of Children,” Plutarch, A.D. 110
  • Children are immature. As such they behave in an immature fashion. That means you cannot expect them always to be “tactful and courteous”. If you try to make them behave that way, you will frustrate yourself, frustrate them, and destroy your relationship.

    • I will also advise his feet to be wash’d every day in cold water, and to have his shoes so thin, that they might leak and let in water.… It is recommendable for its cleanliness; but that which I aim at in it, is health; and therefore I limit it not precisely to any time of the day. —”Some Thoughts Concerning Education,” John Locke, 1693

    There is no discernible health advantage of having cold wet feet.

    • But let mothers deign to nurse their children, morals will reform themselves, nature’s sentiments will be awakened in every heart, the state will be repeopled. —”Emile: or, On Education,” Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 1762


    I am not even sure what this is saying. However, it sounds like Rousseau is condemning nursing.

    For the record, nursing is the best way of nourishing your infant…period. Anyone who feels it is beneath her dignity to care for her child the best way possible should just stick with owning a Poodle.

    ———-

    • Even very little children are happy when they think they are useful. “I can do some good—can’t I, mother?” is one of the first questions asked….Let them go out with their little basket, to weed the garden, to pick peas for dinner, to feed the chickens, &c. —”The Mother’s Book,” Lydia Maria Child, 1831

    Okay, so it took some 1800 years, but finally here is some very good advice. You want to empower your children. The best way to do this is by allowing them to do things. We have had our children as young as 2 years old help with washing the dishes. This is a great self-esteem builder.

    ———-

    • Babies under six months old should never be played with; and the less of it at any time the better for the infant. —”The Care and Feeding of Children,” L. Emmett Holt, 1894

    This is not just bad advice, it is criminal.

    Studies show that babies have such a need for love and attention, that if they don’t get that attention they die. You should play with your baby as much as you possibly can.

    ———-

    • Never hug and kiss them, never let them sit in your lap. If you must, kiss them once on the forehead when they say good night. Shake hands with them in the morning. Give them a pat on the head if they have made an extraordinary good job of a difficult task. —”Psychological Care of Infant and Child,” John B. Watson, 1928

    Same as above. If you want your child to be healthy do the exact opposite of what Watson recommends.

    ———-

    • The more people have studied different methods of bringing up children the more they have come to the conclusion that what good mothers and fathers instinctively feel like doing for their babies is usually best after all.

      Furthermore, all parents do their best job when they have a natural, easy confidence in themselves. Better to make a few mistakes from being natural than to do everything letter-perfect out of a feeling of worry. —”The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care,” Benjamin Spock, 1946

    I have frequently heard reference to Dr. Benjamin Spock as the man who destroyed an entire generation. In the late 1960’s, Norman Vincent Peale said of Spock that “the U.S. was paying the price of two generations that followed the Dr. Spock baby plan of instant gratification of needs.”

    In this particular quote, Spock gives great advice, provided that what you do naturally as a parent is the correct thing.

    What is most natural to parents is to raise their children the way they were raised. So if your parents never got angry, gave you firm but loving limits, gave you all the attention you needed, built your self esteem, and were all around perfect parents, then Spock has great advice for you. Being a great parent will be natural for you.

    Of course, if you’re naturally a great parent you probably won’t be looking for parenting advice.

    However, if your parents ever had stress, expressed anger or frustration, ignored you, or fell short in any area of parenting, which is essentially everybody, then what comes naturally to you may be destructive for your child.

    The other problem with this advice is that it presupposes that the world is basically the same as it was the last generation. In 1946, this might have been true. However, today the world is changing so rapidly and the challenges you face as a parent as so different than your parents faced raising you, that if your parenting style feels natural to you, it is almost certain you are missing something.

    ANNOUNCEMENT: The average college education today costs about $80,000 for state colleges and up to $200,000 for private universities.

    Next week we are holding a private, by invitation only teleseminar on how to send your child to college without having to mortgage your home or assuming ten years worth of debt.

    And you are invited.

    This teleclass will be held next Thursday. I am still working out the details.

    Here is my recommendation:

    Unless you regularly earn about $10,000 an hour, the hour you spend on this call will be well worth your time. Also, even though we have not officially announced this class we are already half full.

    So I suggest you do the following:

    1- Go to:


    http://www.facebook.com/parentingyourteen

    And ‘Like’ this page.

    That way you will be on the early announcement list and be able to get a spot.

    2- Read the post entitled: Financing College- 3 Myths that are Costing You Tens of Thousands of Dollars This is the last post I made on this blog.

    3-Please leave a comment below

When it comes to financing a college education, parents make a lot of mistakes. These mistakes may cost you tens of thousands of dollars a year.

Fact: There are literally billions of dollars available to help you send your child to college.
The trick is how to get some of that.


Here are 3 myths that may be costing your child thousands of dollars.

    1- All I need to do is apply: Most parents think that all they need to do is fill out the required forms and if they merit aid they will get it. Big mistake! There will be forms to fill out. But if that is all you do, you will be losing thousands of dollars that should be yours.
    2- State Schools and Community Colleges are more affordable: The average private school will cost $47,500 a year. In comparison, the average state school costs about $20,000 a year. Since 4 years of private college costs $110,000 it only makes sense that it is cheaper to send your child to a state college.
    Wrong. You can get a financial package to finance most of all your child’s education.

    I know of one family that received $50,075 a year to finance their child’s education at Stanford. Their required contribution- $1,700.


    Another student, the child of a physician received $44,500 to go to Pepperdine University.

    Another student got $46,900 a year to go to Johns Hopkins University. None of this money was a loan and there is nothing the family will need to pay back.

    3- I earn too much:
    Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! The aid you get is not based upon what you earn, but upon what you can show that you need. And once you understand exactly what factors they are looking at and how the whole thing works, you can position yourself to knock thousands of dollars of your bill.

We have only touched on the tip of this topic. But I want you to understand that there is lots of money available to finance your child’s education… If you know how to get it.

And that is our next step; how to get your share of the billions of dollars that is available to you.

Last week we held hosting a teleseminar with the president of the leading college planning company in the United States. Those parents who attended the seminar saw step-by-step what they need to do to save thousands of dollars right now on their child’s education.

This teleseminar was free, but there was only a limited number of lines so most parents were not able to get on this call. Because of this, we have decided to do it all over again to get this information to anyone who was not able to access it the first time around.

If you want your child to go to college and you don’t want to mortgage your home or give your kid $100,000 worth of debt, then you need to be on this call.

Here is what to do next:

We are creating a private notification list for this teleseminar. If you want to be on this list.

I expect us to rebroadcast the teleseminar late this week or early next week.

Knowing how to lose is a critical life lesson that your child must learn.

No one likes to lose. But this is the reality that it is going to happen. There is always someone better than you, faster than you, smarter than you, stronger than you, or better prepared than you. And when you go head to head with that person, you are going to lose. That’s life. The only way to never lose is to never play. That goes for sports, for business, for relationships, and for life.


Unless you drop out of the world completely and give up on participating in life, you are going to lose.

Since losing is a reality for everybody, it makes sense to teach your child how to do it properly.

Here are 5 tips on how to teach your child to lose:

    1- Separate self worth from performance: Children do not have an inherent sense of self worth. They develop their sense of self from how those around them treat them. That means it is very easy for a child to equate success or failure as a measure of his own personal value. This makes losing very hard.


    You have to make it very clear to your child that your love for him and his value as a person is not based on his performance. You value your child for who he is not how well he does. It is critical that your child understand that your love for him is unconditional.

    2- Don’t stifle grief. Losing sucks. No one likes it. If it is something in which your child has invested a lot of time and effort, losing is going to be very hard. It’s okay to be sad. It’s normal and expected. It’s okay for your child to cry.

    3- Look back at what happened. After the initial sting has passed, help your child reexamine his performance and figure out how he could have done better. Teach your child how to make losing a vehicle for improvement and future success.

    4- Be available to talk. You can let your child take the initiative but make yourself accessible to discuss what is happening. It could be your child has lost interest in the activity or is ready for a change. You can only learn this if you are available to talk when your child is ready.

    5- Don’t give up. Losing is a temporary setback. Defeat is only permanent if your child gives up.

Losing is lousy. But if you teach your child how to handle it properly he can use his loss to build an even greater success in the future.
