Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

if your daughter came to you and said she wanted to be

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Your dd is 18, graduated high school, has a scholarship for college.

One day she comes to you and says she doesnt want to go to college. All she wants to do is be a stay at home mom.

Your daughter doesnt even have a boyfriend.

How do you react?

I'd tell her that I didn't raise her to be lazy and to get a real job.

I'd smack some sense into her...figuratively anyway. Waste a scholarship? Heeeelllll no! I'd tell her to go to school and live a little before giving up a scholarship..I'd also tell her if she didn't go using the scholarship to forget about getting any help from me if she changed her mind in 6 months and wanted to go to school...waste a scholarship!? Over my dead body AND my student loans!

Eh, I meant a fine goal. That's what I wanted to be. I did work and do some school before kids. But when my first came along I became a SAHM.

Quoting Anonymous:

Its fine for her to sit on her ass at home doing nothing until she marries/has kids?



Quoting Johariz:

I'd tell her that it was fine.

That's wonderful, but she needs to get an education just in case.

Hmmm...I don't know, but I'm not sure I would be too keen on my son dating/marrying a girl with out larger goals. I know that sounds a little shitty, but it is what it is, I guess.

How would she find a man that can support her as a SAHM if she's not in college hitting on the educated guys? College is still her best bet for this possible dream.

At 18 I was the same way. I worked for awhile, meet my husband, and we started our family. I'm not ashamed to.be a sahm.

Eta, I am tired, let me fix my post.
