Your child's education

First you were putting on their diapers. Then you walked them to their kindergarten classroom. You helped them with their math homework. You listened to their loud music through the walls. Are you ready for what comes next?

Post-secondary education tuition can cost over $6,000 per year.1 If you have multiple children, you are looking at a lot of money if you are planning on helping them out. How can you make this process easier?
