There has to be more, right? After all of these years of homeschooling, I find myself coaching the boys on taking the ACT test. After all of these years learning alongside the boys, it kind of pisses me off to be drilling them to take the ACT and the SAT. I want more for them than to just get accepted to a college and go for 4 or so years working at a major they will most likely NEVER use and potentially putting themselves in debt for the next decade or so.
It’s my own fault for not researching more or thinking things through more clearly, but c’mon, who ever believes their kids are going to be old enough to graduate high school much less move out on their own?
Still, though, I wonder. The boys all test well and I’m sure they’ll be fine. I just wonder if there’s only one path. I know Mike and I both ‘knew’ there was one path. It’s worked out fine for us, but looking back, . . . :::sigh:::
I just ordered The New Global Student to look at another perspective. I kind of hate the title, but it sounds interesting and the reviews at Amazon are good as were the reviews I read in a magazine at the allergist’s office.
That all typed out, it’s not my life we’re talking about . . . and that’s the hard part! I’ll keep giving them information and we’ll see what they do with it all . . .
