Throughout my sons junior year he kept telling me that he couldn’t wait to get out of the house and go away to college. I kept telling him that he wasn’t ready ( I wasn’t ready) and that there were some good colleges locally he could go to. After going on some far away college visits I started to realize that I needed to let him go, there are great opportunities outside of our little city. I got excited. I stated pushing him to fill out applications etc. He decided at Christmas break, not only to stay local, but change his major, from engineering to biology/history.????
He applied and has been accepted to a college that one year ago, me mentioning that school was blasphemy. The problem is that he now wants to live in the dorms. We live 8 minutes away!
I told him no way. He said that he will pay for it, ($10,400 each year) and my reply was I won’t cosign the loan, especially since I can’t foresee him getting that great of a job with his new major choice. I’m sure others have gone through this… any comments/suggestions?
