Do your kids plan to go to college?

My daughter's elementary school psychologist, who normally has been supportive, met with my daughter and me "officially" for a final time at the beginning of August. She was suggesting vocational school for her, perhaps as a baker or cook. And maybe she'd get a "special" diploma from high school. Gee, let's shoot for the stars

She had passed the state 5th grade exam for math but not reading.

My other two children want to go to college. I would love for Lizzie to go to college, even if it's just for a certificate course from the community college. Her 4th grade teacher had 2 LD boys and they both graduated from 4 year universities. She told me to have every expectation that she will go to college also.

I think I've already posted about this in another thread, but I'll repeat it anyway.

Brandon, who has moderate to severe dyslexia, is leaving in two weeks to go to a technical college in Indiana. He will do a 15 month program to be certified in Diesel Mechanics. He is not a 4 year college type of kid, so we didn't push him in that direction. We did make it clear that we expected him to go to college, but we let him choose what type of degree or training to get.

My sister, Veronica, definitely wants to go to college. I worry about her success with her memory issues, but I will do everything I can to help her succeed (is that spelled correctly, I'm too tired to check ) when the time comes.

Wow! That would have gotten me really upset. Maybe if she was her own kid she would have more ambitious goals.

Yes, you did. I guess I brought the same thing up twice. I think this is terrific!

You sound like such a great sister!

I don't know about this yet. My kids are too young to really think about that. My son thinks he is going to be Peter Pan and never grow up. LMBO.
