How can 2 highly educated parents of 4 kids

NOT understand that the PLUS, or whatever that parent loan is called, is a loan?

Who is in charge here? The parents or the kids? Kids wanting private school and mom and dad happy to indulge …. and none of them thinking about the consequences, eventual financial toll, the toll on the parent/kid relationship, ability to get the ONE job they love vs. “settling” for 2-3 jobs just to make the loan payment i.e. online payday loans no credit check? Parents sacrificing all savings for retirement? The kids and parents are in debt up to their eyeballs or more … they ALL are one emergency (or one missed paycheck) away from bankruptcy.
