It's not the only way, but I think whoever could have a chance to study and be able to get to college should go to college.

Everyone has its own idea of happiness and the way to touch it.

The worst is to impose its idea to children.

But how would you think about these kinda parents, "oh it's okay. Yeah, just drop out of high school if you wanted to. There are more things and chances in life for you. Do whatever you want even if you might turn out to be a bum." What is your thought about those kinda parents? :?

I think parents should show their children the most possible opportunities and ways in life, not only university.

Maybe the child won't prefer the university, maybe he will.

The child's motivation sources you cannot choose.

This is true, but have you ever thought of there are kids who don't know what they want or just afraid or too lazy to get what they want? Some kids need boundaries, and as being good parents they should tell their kids to learn more. Don't push the kids to study what they want them to study. Tell them to study what they like to study. Don't go to college is a bad advice to me. How many people are there like Bill Gates? And for Bill Gates's case, he dropped out of COLLEGE because they had nothing more to teach him. He did indeed get in Harvard.

Each being is a particular case. :lol:

So, I won't say that university (or any other path) is the best one.

When you make people believe that some thing is necessary (and it is not necessary), you make them frustrated if they miss this thing, frustration which shouldn't be.

It's the most conventional way.

Not necessarily. There are many alternatives, university and college aren't the only ways. :!:
