I am a very concerned mother who doesn't want to spend money on a worthless college career. I know that sounds blunt, and I know I may be attacked by other college parents, but let's keep it honest! I have never been the type of mother that told my children that they can go to college for ANYTHING and be successful no matter what, because that is simply false! My eldest son isn't too good in math, and he is searching for majors outside of math,science,and engineering... How do I show him that that is a big mistake? Engineering is booming right now and forever, and majors without math and science are pretty much fake and worthless, especially in the economy today. I am refusing to help him financially until he chooses a major that will make him successful in the real world.
Am I being too harsh on him? I love my son, but I don't want him to spend years on something that isn't worth anything valuable. It's blunt the world we live in has changed.
