The threads about school and homework got me thinking about what we were chatting about at lunch yesterday with friends that going to uni is more of a must these days to get a better job/career ?
DH and I never went and one of the reasons we chose DS school is that it has a registered TAFE section so the boys who wanted to do a trade and not go to uni could finish school and go straight into an apprenticeship as I didn't think I cared what DS wanted to do when he left school but now with house prices and the cost of living rising and apparently now more and more jobs require a degree - should we be encouraging our kids to want to go to uni ? I'm all for letting kids do what they love but I never want DS to struggle financially?
Will you encourage your kids go go to uni? Is it important to you? Do you regret going/not going?
