Definitely true. Thankfully (and I understand how lucky I am), my parents were able to send me to private school K-12, and now a private university + I have money away for graduate school (a trust I guess).
I'm trying not to sound like a bratty kid, because I know how lucky I am that my parents were smart in how they saved money for my future and still have money to spend on our luxuries -food/vacation/cars/house etc without needing to rack up bills/debt
