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.

"That's fine dear. Stay in school and find some nice man with good work ethic."
