  • don't force them. College isn't for everyone. If they want to go to college they will.

  • maybe do the whole pple who go to college make more money speech? im not sure boys are harder to motivate than girls. I guess get them to find something they are passionate about that or set up a savings account for them and slowly put money in it and tell them they get when they have an associate's degree. Thats what my mom is going to do to my brother since an associates only takes two years. Kind of underhanded but it works

  • They need jobs to realize the grind of it all for themselves.
