18. To each his or her own, I guess.
It's not something I could do, on either end, but I gave up judging what people do to get by, as long as it doesn't harm the people involved or others.

I suspect that many "babies" get more than they expected, though, out of these arrangements, and not all for their own good. Much room for abuse here.

That said, I was good friends with a young woman who put herself through college and grad school this way, way back in the early 1970s. It worked out OK for her, although it hardened her in ways that didn't seem beneficial to me. I lost touch with her when she went elsewhere for her PhD, so I don't know how things ended up.
