No I hope he graduates high school and goes to college idk
No because I dont live in the same town as I did as a child and two they are their own self and will want to do other things...
Attend the same school? Not necessarily though we'd like them to go to a small liberal arts college like our alma mater. Obtain the same degree? I doubt that our boys have the affinity for my line of work (or my husband's) but we'd be delighted if they want to go to grad school for an advanced degree in a discipline they're passionate about.
Nope. I attended an ultra-conservative Christian college and would never send them there. My other undergrad is from a rather generic state university. DH graduated from the USAF Academy, and neither one has any great desire to join the military.
Yes. One has more options with advanced degrees. We both have doctorate level degrees and we hope our children proceed this far as well, given that they are academically-oriented anyway.
My son is going to the community college that I started at then he will go away for the other two years. I worked full time while going to school and never got the chance to live away from home. I want my kids to be able to have that experience. My 12yo will probably go right into a 4 year college. She's disciplined and gets her work done for the most part.
No. I want them to find what makes them happy and do that.
