      Great message Fred. I feel like college is and always will be a good idea, but how can we tell if its the right thing for our kids? I have a college degree in Computer Science and i dont regret it.

        Great question. I believe that if your kid is socially adept and academically OK, then studying a subject they enjoy will serve them for life. If they really aren’t mature enough yet for college, it’s likely best to go work for awhile for the sake of seasoning and motivation.
