If you’re a US citizen, 25 or older, are unmarried, and make less than $30,000 a year, you can get a free, grant funded ride through community college if you specify on the fafsa that your parents will not be helping you. I used it to learn how to weld but it can be applied to anything from IT to any other well paying skill you can think of. IMPORTANT EDIT: ALSO, someone fact check this but I think you must be a full time student to get full funding. I’m not sure about this at all, however. At the time I was a security guard so I happened to have the free time for homework/online courses etc. In addition to my in-person classes. IMPORTANT EDIT 2: OK, so, I just learned the following from one u/MrTweakers below. Go ahead and up vote him. >Yes, you must be a full time student to receive the entire Pell Grant, however if you go half time you get half of the Pell grant. >Also, you don’t need to be 25 years old if; A) You have a child. B) You are a veteran. C) You have ever been in foster care. Or D) You have ever been declared a ward of the state. >Also, you need not be a US born citizen. If you have a green card, that qualifies you, and (specifically in CA) if you are undocumented but have a tax payer ID then you qualify. >Edit: Also add this little secret. If you don’t meet the qualifications for adulthood as specified but your parents are divorced, you are only required by law to include 1 (count that, one!) parents income. There are no laws stating which one you have to pick either. So pick the one that’s not as well off! Lol Yes I really did quote an edit within an edit!


It’s like raising kids. You’re not raising the kid you have now, you’re raising the adult they’ll be. Sometimes you just have to let them / force them to spend the time doing something that would take you 5 mins
