I live with my in-laws. We were eating dinner and my 17 yr old brother in law was making fun of my 20 yr old SIL for starting college in a month. He was saying she would never finish and she was just using it as a reason to get a laptop and stuff. It made me mad because I am in high school and she and I both care very much about education. I yelled sarcastically to him (dropped out in 6th grade) in front of my MIL and FIL who both never finished high school; "Some people actually care if they are educated!!!!" My BIL got a thoughtful look and my MIL quickly interrupted me with "You dont have to go to school to be smart and personality is what matters.."
I think it is stupid that she let her kid drop out and is know being anti-education by defending his decision in front of her 12 and 14 year olds. She thinks she is right and I am hurting peoples feelings because I think I am better then them because I am in school.

I think it was a good response... if you were older and supporting yourself. I agree 100% with your intentions and feelings about education. But while you are under their roof as a teenage mother I would simply bite my tongue and go with the flow. The best revenge is to live a good happy life. Do right by your child, be a good mother, finish your education... and THAT will drive home your point.
