Advice for Parents
We have become a nation obsessed with the idea that not only is a college education a must for everyone, but that to have a truly successful life, one must only attend the very best college possible. This myth not only creates unreasonable stress on students and their families, but it can also destroy their futures
The choice of college tends to influence the first job because there's not much else for an employer to go on. But, after that, it's what you accomplish in the real world is what matters and is taken into consideration.
Many times it is seen that most college graduates end up in careers totally unrelated to what they majored in and thus their education doesn't really help them in the real world.
Therefore what is advisable is expose our young to a well-rounded education, which has some intrinsic value. Just don't focus on the grades but rather the exposure. Try to find out what his interests are and in which field he will excel.
We are too obsessed with degrees and not enough with the development of the person. In the long road of life it is the person that will matter, not the degree that he acquires. Thus it is not the college that is important but it is the person's interests and skills that matters.
