This statement
You said you had hoped they get more in financial aid.
does NOT logically lead to this:
why do you think it makes more sense for your kids to spend more on their education

If they do go to college, I do not find it at all unreasonable for the college to expect the child to spend that money on their own education.
It's not unreasonable.
It's also not unreasonable to maximize the chance that you (or your child) has at getting financial aid (and minimize the student's costs) - SOME of the aid IS grants and subsidized loans.
