Dear Carolyn: My parents started a college fund for each of my kids and said it was so they could go to any college of their choice. I am incredibly grateful. My husband and I have saved some money but not a lot because we are both teachers.
My mom passed away two years ago and things seem different with my dad. My oldest daughter got into College A and College B. She really wants to go to College A, but my dad now says she can use the money only if she goes to College B because it would provide the best opportunities.
I want my daughter to choose the school she likes best. My dad is adamant. Would it be best to seek out other options? — Strings Attached
