In today's world, it seems like there are more responsibilities than when I was a teen. I certainly didn't have to worry as much about going to college to be able to have a good job.
My daughter came home with courses that she will be taking next year, and she's also talking about taking some summer courses to be able to clear up the schedule next year for cosmetology...wow, that has really thrown me for a loop. I have my oldest 2 daughters who are cosmetologists, and since my teen was so much into the "equine vet" for her college major, I was really suprized when she mentioned a whole new field to me. She has explained that she wants this as a way to work and make some money WHILE going to college for her "vet" studies. Such a smart girl I have and I am so happy that she is making wise choices for her future. I think she has some great motivation here and am praying that she sticks with it.....I am excited for her ! I think that she has been learning, not only from me, but from school and society that it is more of a responsibility these days to be able to make enough money to survive on, especially with all these taxes we pay!
