Dear Moms,
My daughter finished college 2 years ago and she is working in marketing and struggling with a low salary (she has a degree in Journalism and Communications) that does not match her up scale taste...I think that if she gets an MBA she will learn a lot and also move up the salary ladder...
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Rina

If she doesn't wish to pursue graduate school, that's her choice. She will find her fit in the world, just as we all do.

Were you to attempt to force her, you would potentially alienate her, which I'm certain you don't want. Let her live her life, make her own choices, and be supportive. Don't put down her choices simply because you 'feel' she'd do better with an MBA. She may not be interested in that angle.

I totally agree with the other ladies. She needs to make her own choices, she's an adult now. There does come a time when you can give advice but our children may not listen and that's fine.

I have to agree with Chet MC. Its her choice. As long as she is happy, don't push the issue. As Chet MC said, just suggest it and let her take it from there.

This isn't something you should try to convince a person to do. It needs to be her choice. You can suggest it, but then leave it up to her. It's your daughters life, and going to graduate school is a big step.
