It can be a difficult decision cutting financial ties with your children. No mother or father wants to do that. You've provided for your child or children for 18-plus years and then what? A lot of money (if not, majority of it) comes out of parents' pockets each year to pay for their child's college education, housing, insurance, and sometimes even food or books. Auto insurance can be a hefty sum of cash coming out of your pocket to allow your child to drive to and from home, work, and school. Transportation is definitely important, especially if you want you kid to make it to their internship or job on time or even visit you at home. So how long should you pay for your child's auto insurance?
