College - Is it a priority?

Posted by   + Show Post

I know that we have asked this question in the past,  but I think it needs repeating since we have some new members in here.  



Is College a top priority for your child(ren)?  

What schools are a possibilty?

Well Hi there.  :)   is College something you talk about in general, not at all or just as an occasional talking point?   

Quoting Hippie.Gypsy:

Nope... if DS wants to go to college, he can go. If he don't, he is not expected to.

He'll only be 7 in a couple days, lol... no it hasn't really been brought up yet.

But when it comes up I am gonna tell him it is completely his choice, if he wants to go and learn things taught there or get a degree in something he loves, then great... if he doesn't want to and wants to make his own way in life, that is awesome too.

Awww ~  Well Happy Birthday to him!   

I would say then that he has a few years yet before he even has to think about College.  :)

I actually have 5 daughters. I only homeschool the 3 youngest and my 2 older daughters are 11th and 12th grade in public school and are doing great. My 11th grader is going to college to be a doctor and my 12th grader is going to college to be a engineer. My 5,7 and 8 yr old don't quite know what they really want to be they say a ballerina and other little cute stuff! !







Quoting kirbymom:

from your profile picture, I am gathering you have 3 daughters. May I ask what their names are?  What do they like or are interested in?  

Quoting SuperMommy408:

Yes college is a big priority!!
