As we approach graduation, people keep asking me about how our high school senior got into university.
“What was the process like? How did he decide where to apply? Was the essay hard? When were applications due?
And I’m like, “I have no idea. You’d have to ask him.”
And then they’re all, ” 🙁 🙁 🙁 ”
We just figured if our kid couldn’t handle getting himself into college, he probably doesn’t belong there. Crazy, I know.
Why am I laughing? I have read so many blog entries, articles, and pieces about parents who fill out college apps for their kids, fill out the FAFSA for their kids, decide where their kid should go, etc. It is so wonderful to see parents who are encouraging their kids to do this stuff themselves like the rest of us had to do 20(!) years ago!
