Pros and Cons: Should You Help Out with Your Child’s Student Loan Debt Burden?

Need parenting and financing experts to weigh in on a big question for college-costs on families: Should a parent or parents pitch in on a child’s student loan burden? Why or why not? If so, what are the best ways to help, and how do you balance things out so the child pays, too? Also, if the answer is “no” – how do you tell that to a college grad family member? This is a “pros and cons” piece, and the more pros and cons I get on the topic, the better. Thanks! Requirements: Student loan experts, college savings experts, college grads with loan debt. college parents who have either paid or not paid their child’s loan debts, financial experts.
