Introduction to College Saving

Please, be the next Einstein

The Motley Fool provides an introduction to Saving for your Child's College Fees. It starts rather disencouraging:
You're not going to like what you're about to read, but you probably suspect as much. You probably have a sense of looming unpleasantness, the kind of feeling you get right before you open a container of leftovers that has been in the fridge for a few months. But it's time to face reality, Fool.

But trust me, it's getting better as you read further. The statistics provided in the article will you give you some hope that if your "pride and joy" is just a little brighter than Forrst Gump he might recieve financial aid in some way.
In my opinion, the most valuable advice is hidden at the end of the article: Do as much as you can to save money for your child's education, no matter what time it is you realize that there is something missing you should have taken care of long ago...

Also worth looking at: What's the best way to save for college?
