College - Is it a priority?
January 31, 2013 at 2:22 PM

I know that we have asked this question in the past,  but I think it needs repeating since we have some new members in here.  



Is College a top priority for your child(ren)?  

What schools are a possibilty?

    Well Hi there.  :)   is College something you talk about in general, not at all or just as an occasional talking point?

    Nope... if DS wants to go to college, he can go. If he don't, he is not expected to.

    He'll only be 7 in a couple days, lol... no it hasn't really been brought up yet.

    But when it comes up I am gonna tell him it is completely his choice, if he wants to go and learn things taught there or get a degree in something he loves, then great... if he doesn't want to and wants to make his own way in life, that is awesome too.

    Awww ~  Well Happy Birthday to him!   

    I would say then that he has a few years yet before he even has to think about College.  :)

    I actually have 5 daughters. I only homeschool the 3 youngest and my 2 older daughters are 11th and 12th grade in public school and are doing great. My 11th grader is going to college to be a doctor and my 12th grader is going to college to be a engineer. My 5,7 and 8 yr old don't quite know what they really want to be they say a ballerina and other little cute stuff! !

    from your profile picture, I am gathering you have 3 daughters. May I ask what their names are?  What do they like or are interested in?  

    Quoting SuperMommy408:
