So my son graduates in May and has no interest in going to college, he says he will sign up for classes at the local community college, if we want and we pay for it, but he has no interest. he said he wants to work and do what daddy does, we will get into that another time. We hasve worked hard to provide as many options as possible for our son, should I try and sell him on college or let him do what he wants for now?Answer Question

depends 100% on "what daddy does"............... so, what does dad do???
My husbands job requires a doctorate... so no college and doing what daddy does really isnt an option in this house... so I can not relate 100%... but.... I would say to my child: college or move out.
If you want to go straight into the work field... that is fine, it is your choice... I do NOT agree with it ... but it is your life and so I am giving it (the life) to you 100% - move out come Aug (since he would be home during the summer anyway if he had chosen college.. and then he can save for an apt)
btw... that was the rule at my home growing up... I chose to move out... I ended up having to put myself through college because of it.. but I grew up pretty darn fast.
