Celebrity Q&A
Who: Nicholas Sparks
Author ("The Notebook")
Fame & Fortune Q&A:
Bankrate: How do you plan for your children's future? Have you set up college funds?
Nicholas Sparks: No. For one, there's no reason to. I guess the extent of our college plans is "You know you're going to college, so try to get some decent grades." But where they go, I honestly and truly don't care -- if they go to Harvard, great; if they go to East Carolina University, great. Every kid is different. I've learned enough by this age to realize that kids are going to be who they're going to be. You do the best you can until they're 14, 15 and 16 and then they start making their own decisions, and by 18 or 19, they're really not interested in yours, for at least a few years, and then they get interested again. But I'm not there yet.
Lesson learned: 
Let each child discover who he or she is.
