we want her to be secure and financially independent once she wraps up her undergrad career
i'm some loony idiot spewing lies and being impractical. you would think *I* was the one on here calling people names and telling them they are freaks. i have said several times i did not mean to demean the liberal arts. I even said that I was sure there are many capable and successful lib arts majors.
Son took one, and we discovered, that A's in math and science do not neccesarily stack up to what it takes to be an engineer. His apptitude test says he should be an attorney or a professor (great vocabulary, lousy mechanical ability!)
That is insane, to suggest that an undecided kid should just go to comm college. Hello?
Are you not aware that the best colleges in the country admit, and are perfectly fine with, kids who are undecided?
But why on earth should a bright kid whose parents can afford a good school drop down to cc if he doesn't have to, just because he's not sure if he wants to major in English or history?
Because it's her daughter's life we are talking about here. Why not arrange her marriage while she's at it?
Sorry, but you DO come across like an idiot, and an impractical one. And you may not be lying, but you have no idea how awful you sound. You are demeaning people right and left -- starting with your own daughter, which in my book is a pretty awful thing to do. You can call that "practical"; I think "loony" is too kind for it. I am trying to imagine what could be practical about undermining your own child and trying to force her to study something she dislikes. If you want to throw your tuition money away, and wreck your relationship with your daughter, that's exactly how to do it.
what could she do with a women and gender studies major, no bachelor's, no work experience as some of you would have it?
If your kid isn't interested in STEM, and you force her to study it, ta-da-- you are forcing her to study something she dislikes. If that's your position, then own it.
