**SPIN OFF of the SAHM high school post***Is college a priority in your home?
Is college a priority in your home? Do you talk about it with your kids? Do you lead by example (either positive or negative)?
In our home it absolutely is a huge focal point of our everyday lives. We talk about it everyday. We talk about grades and discuss how important it is to do your best, and for every person that is different, but a high school dipolma is non negotiable. College is not even considered an option to our kids, its a requirement. Period. They don't even know that its a choice because we have never approached it in that fashion.
When DH & I decided to marry, before having any kids we talked in depth about our parenting styles and what the 2 focuses of our family would be, God & Education. We moved to be within a half mile of a University (our Alma Mater) so that our children would be more inclined to choose a 4 year degree program rather than a 2 year Associate Degree.
So what about you ladies? How do you approach the subject of college?
