How long should parents support their children financially?
Until they get a job.
Is there a limit? What if someone doesn’t get a job for a really long time?
I would say, 20, maybe; because 18 is still too young. Until they go to college and they’re in their sophomore year.
Do you know people who have not gone to college?
Yes, I know a couple of people who work and did not go to college.
Do your parents still help you now?
What are you studying?
Prelaboratory science, which is in the medical field. I have one more year left. Then, I have to apply to OHSU and do another year; and then, I can work in any lab.
Where are you from?
I’m from the Middle East. My family lives here, too.
