How do you motivate a soon to be freshman in high school to want to attend college in the future?
My daughter is already saying like omg I have to take a lot of classes in high school and that she doesn't really want to go to college but knows that she kind of doesn't have a choice in that other than getting herself there. How can I motivate her or change her attitude about it???
i personally feel that not every child should be pushed into attending college. Most freshmen in high school really have no idea what they want to be when they grow up. What is important is to find out your daughter's strengths and weaknesses and then give her good counseling. If she has been weak in math and science, it would be a mistake to try to motivate her to study math and science in high school and try to get into college. If, on the other hand, she is good at a trade using her hands like being a hair stylist or a chef, she should be encouraged to attend a vocational school. When I was younger, I saw so many kids flunk out of college after one year because they shouldn't have been there in the first place.
