Is your child going back to college this year, or heading to college for the first time? Marketplace Money is looking for insight into how you as a parent are helping your college student plan their finances.

Share your experience with Marketplace Money.

Do you lay down the law for the school year budget with your college student, or do you work out a budget together? Who pays for what? If your student is returning to college this year, has your experience from last year led you to do anything differently this year? And if your kid doesn’t stick to the plan…how do you enforce the budget?

Your stories wanted. Share your thoughts on college student budgeting, and Tess might just drag you onto the show to ask you about your game plan.
