I grew up in a household where it seemed my older brother was 'kind of' expected to go to college after high school, but I don't remember at all ever being made to feel like there was an expectation that I go to college after high school.
Now I am 41 and a senior in college - I started when I was 36 - I am starting to get a little annoyed that my parents didn't build that sense of desire to attend college when I was younger. I feel like I missed out on a lot of things because of it.
I am now a mother and stepmother to four children and we talk about college and our expectations of our children to go to college on a regular basis. We take our kids on informal college campus tours when we are near a campus, and already we have an 18 yr old who graduated HS 2yrs early and is now a junior in college.
Do you expect your kids to go to college after high school? Were you expected to go to college?
