Yeah, fuck your parents and what they say, at this point. You can calmly say to them that they really forfeited their right to have any say in this when they spent your college money on personal items and when they broke their promise to contribute to all the kids schooling. Not to mention when they decided to have 6 fucking kids. That’s on them.
Is the money from the apartment enough to cover the 3 oldest kids’ educational expenses? If not, I would just divide it equally between you and be done with it. If it is, and/or there’s any left over, you could do something small for the younger kids if you want to. A Roth IRA is another idea. My mom put $1000 in one for me when I was maybe 22, and it’s over $21k now. It could be an emergency fund, because you can withdraw your contributions without penalty. But it’s also retirement savings.
