As my daughter Sierra was entering college, she and I were discussing the merits of a higher education. I supported her decision, but told her that I felt college was not necessary and that she would be better off getting her education from moi 😄 (yeah, I was trying to push her buttons). Not surprisingly, she was taken aback by my comment and blurted, “Dad, I can’t believe you don’t think I should go to college!?” “Baby girl, one, college is not for everyone, and I happen to believe you fall into this category (yeah, I crack myself up), and two, the cost of going to college often does not outweigh the benefits”. You may think that I was trying to save me and her momma \$120k by not sending her to college, but I promise you that I had a very reasoned scenario to substantiate my claim, which I shared with her.
