It looks like SAH/WOH isn't just for moms any more.

Hey, I fully realize I'd have no teeth left at all were it not for my hygienist.

I wouldn't mind if my kids wanted an education simply because they wanted to the education, without clear career goals in mind. Intellectual curiousity is not a bad thing.

>>WHY OH WHY can't we just respect that the whole world doesn't want to be lawyers, doctors etc...and it in NO WAY makes them anything less.

It's one of the very best, the oldest and most selective

You know, she did get into a program like that, 4 years, B.S., plenty of electives, and a nice stipend, too.

I just wanted to interject that my aunt (with a BS in dental hygiene) works for public health and has had a really interesting and successful career. She currently lives in Alaska and flies out to islands to clean people's teeth and is working on a training program so dental hygienists don't have to fly out to the islands. She also worked in DC for a while writing grants. She also worked at prisons across the country.

There's little of what I'd call general education:

I can see why you and your DH might be concerned. I wouldn't want DD to go to that kind of program either.
