Are You going to force your kids to Graduate? Will this help them Prosper and Learn?

Yesterday , I was asked if I was going to force my five kids to go to college ? My answer shocked this person when I said “no”. This person stated “don’t you know without an education your kids will fail? I just smiled and excused myself and left the conversation.

How many times were you told that a college degree was a must  for a good career ? Now , I am not saying anything is wrong with getting a degree, but it is not a “golden ticket” In fact , Trent stated some interesting facts,  we should at least realize:

“…I intend to encourage their critical thinking skills as much as I can and try to expose them to as many areas as possible while still at home. They’ll try musical instruments, various art forms, sciences of all kinds, and so on, and we’ll see where their natural magnet leads them.

I’m also going to strongly encourage them to be entrepreneurs in their spare time, from selling lemonade to mowing lawns. Or maybe even starting their own blogs – I’ve discovered some amazingly successful bloggers early in their teen years….” See the entire Post at- Is College Really Necessary For All High School Graduates? : The Simple Dollar

In our family growing up , we had a saying :

“If you have will there is a way ,” if there is a way, there is a Willis!”

We were taught to be an strong advocate for all people, no matter what their status or race, learn at high levels and that all things are really possible that is why ,all of us following or parents example and helping others through creative ways, most of us didn’t need their college education and become successful entrepreneurs!

However, IT MUST be noted all of us have learned the principles from “prosper learning” high quality programs and have found Success . our families success Here are a few of them, both contemporary and from the past,.
