<<Feeling really crappy this week for using a CC, everything was going so well. I guess I am learning a few lesions on co-signing not only from the financial but from the personal. Its just not worth the stress that develops between our son and us. It would have been so much better to not cosign. Nothing good has come from it.>> Sorry to hear about the difficulties. As usual, no good deed seems to go unpunished.As a non parent, it's always a mystery to me why parents seem to go a long way out of their way to saddle their children with all the expenses that go along with an automobile. It seems like a no brainer to me to treat such a luxury as a pricilege and responsibility of being an adult. If a kid can't afford it --- do without.I can see ---barely, permitting a child to drive the family car, and the family bearing the substantial cost of that provilege. Perhaps that's especially justified where the kid is doing well in school and is responsible and doing useful things with their time ---as a reward and a privilege of good behavior. But saddling a kid with the expenses of car ownership always strikes me as bordering on abuse, and encouraging a kid to saddle themselves with substantial expenses they often can't handle. No favor to them, in my view, however much they may beg to have that bit, bridle and saddle installed.But perhaps some parent can explain this urge to me.Seattle Pioneer
