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

I guess I just thought she'd want more of a typical 4-year education, which seems to be what her friends are going for.

Overall, ITA, but for now dental hygiene is almost entirely dominated by women.

I don't see dentist and dental hygenist as comparing apples to apples, just like doctor and nurse are not really comparable.

It's as much a concern of ours as the female ghetto thing; she'll have very little chance to explore.

My sentiments exactly, but that kind of curiosity seems to be in short supply chez moi at the moment.

Okay, this is encouraging; a dynamic career in this field.

LOL - in some ways, I think it is bizarre overall that 18 year olds are expected to know what they want to do for their "life's work".


This spoken as someone who knew they had chosen the wrong school program before I was finished!

<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. >


That is something that I can persue now that I have a degree that can make me money.

Overreact much?
