If my kids don't want to go to college or university then they've always got the option to go flip burgers for min wage, with my five and their lavish lifestyle, that'll keep them entertained for about six months. I worked at a nursing home as a nurses aide straight out of highschool for a year while I upgraded, let me tell you, university and a little hard work looked much better than wiping butts for min wage for the next forty years. If they choose not to go, then I guess I'll use their education funds for a house in Italy. Either way they won't be living here unless they're working and paying bills/rent--we're moving into a condo when I retire which will be when Joey starts college. We've got enough middle aged men in my immediate family still living with their mothers, the cycle is stopping here.

And they don't have to all be brain surgeons, but they need to have a goal of some sort, otherwise why bother working hard in highschool?
