Topic of the day! Read below

For me this is a No. As Scholar, I do want my son (and any future child) to have a plan for their life. At 16-18 years old, college is an important decision which puts a strain of pressure on them at a young age. So, if he said, he’s not ready then I can respect that. If he said, community college, I will respect that. If he says I want to be a doctor which entails undergrad and med school, I will respect that too. More research for scholarships, more options at public colleges or state colleges. Why? Because I don’t want him to make the same mistakes that I did. This is not an attack on college because I do not regret my degrees, but I want my child to go at his pace not what I’m forcing him to do. ***Also, he will have to work during the time he’s trying to figure out his life.

Let me know!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I definitely want my future children to know that college and working for someone else are not the only options. I’ll have enough money saved for them to travel or start college loan-free, if they choose. I think about how mentally young I was as a high school senior; you’re used to so much order and guidance then you’re expected to know what you want to do with your life. It’s not the best system.

    1. Thanks so much for your response! I completely agree. I do NOT want my son to have even gm half of the loan debt that I have. I want to pay for his school or for him to have full rides. He can take his time, it won’t be any pressure from my husband or myself.
