  • Absolutely not!!!! STAY IN SCHOOL. Let the 19 year old deal with their own problems, they are now an adult and should be treated as such. The other teens need to learn responsibility for their actions, mom can't be around all the time holding their hands and fixing their problems. DO NOT give up school.

  • No i don't think that dropping out of college is gonna show your troubled child anything but how easy it is for you to just give up on your dreams. Children learn from us parents and if we give up on everything then it does'nt show or teach them anything good. Your a mommy you can do both and it will be hard but trust in yourself that you can do it.

  • I can't believe it has been a year since I have been on this site. I stayed in school. I just have one year of graduate school left, but we are trying to help our teenagers recycle unmet needs. It has not been an easy year, but the Lord has helped me tremendously. Now, I need not to give up and trust He will give me courage to keep fighting obstacles so our family grows even healthier.
