If my teen fights schoolwork at every turn, should I stop pushing so hard?

I've always told her how important education and a college degree is, but she does not take any real interest. Should I stop dreaming of her going to college, and resign myself to knowing she probably won't make it that far, instead of having so many arguments over her education?

Hey Jodie,

Don't let go if you want your daughter to succeed! I have a 3 daughters, one is 15, one is 13, one is 11. My eldest, Ebony does this sometimes but when I sit down and talk to her about it, she opens up to me and talks to me about why she is doing what she is doing. But this doesn't always work. Maybe, if you try that she will understand the importance of school.

Good Luck to you and your daughter, Carrie :)
