¬†I took my oldest, a Junior this year, to dual-enroll at the community college and we got his paperwork and he seemed fine.¬†We have been talking about this since early in the year...like April, I brought it up with him and got things rolling with the charter school. They will pay for it.
I brOUGHT it up to him last night that COLLEGE starts MONDAY and he MUST get his assesments done and get enrolled, and he FLIPPED OUT! He says "I didn't know "going to college" meant GOING to college. I thought I could do it online. Umm...I NEVER discussed him doing it online. It was alwas "take college classes, go to college, etc."
I figured as he matured, it wouldn' be an issue getting him back into a classroom. He had been bullied and beat up in PS through the 3rd grade. Since then, he took a couple on campus classes his Freshman and sophmore years,¬†through our charter school and DID GREAT... got along with the kids FINE. He does great at boy Scouts and other extracurriculars.
Not sure WHAT to do about him. How far do I push? Academically, he is more than ready. Mentally??
When I was in college, I broke my back riding horses (similar to Christopher Reeves but without permanent injury) but had to withdraw from my English course. I am thinking of offering to go with him to class, but totally ignore him (LMAO) and sit elsewhere so that I am there and know how to help him and we can work somewhat together at home. Do you think that is a good plan?
Or should I let him wait a year? Which I do NOT think wil lbe the answer
Or press him and make him try it? We can always drop and get a refund in the first month.Edited for typos..OMG!! LOL
