It looks like SAH/WOH isn't just for moms any more.
<I agree with Sabina. I feel that getting an education is more important than being trained for a job.>
And that is easy if your parents have TONS O MONEY!!!
"It makes me a little sad sometimes..."; same here, it's a shock to find they just don't value what seems so obviously valuable.
She is getting an education pertaining to her field.
I would say let her do what she wants to do. When parent push their ideals and agendas on their kids it could backfire. My mom was a lobbyiest - a big career woman. She was gone a lot...... She TOLD me I had to get a business major or she would not support me during college. I went through the motions and got my totally useless Econ major. Well, it was not totally useless because I learned a lot and now I am a very savvy investor and our nest egg is quite healthy from my decisions ect.... My grades were not good enough to go to Grad school and there really are not a lot of jobs for Econ majors unless you seek higher education. I managed a Dominos Pizza for a couple of years and I then I waited tables until I figured out what I was going to do when I grew up. I decided to become a RN and my mom gave me a big eye roll. I guess it is one of those Female Ghetto jobs you are refering to. I did it with a future family in mind. I did not have the cut throat attitude for business and taking care of people seemed to make more sense to me and fit my personality. I told my mom I did not like her hours she worked and I think she missed out on a lot of my life - my dad was a teacher and had the family friendly job.
My parents really freaked out when I joined the ARMY as I was trying to figure out what to do with my life. They realized it was a great experience form me and they were big into bragging about me when I got my Captain bars.
