Today, most parents invest so much of themselves in directing, promoting and pursuing the perceived “success” of their 2.1 children in their efforts to get them into college, that they become blind to their kids abilities and interests, sending them off to college whether they want to go, or not.
This is especially true for daughters born during the last 30 years. These young women are forced to spend their innocent lives responding to the destructive and overbearing drumbeat of radical, second-wave feminism’s irrational goal of “independence”, through career and cash. Girls now spend most of their lives preparing for college and a life devoted to “career” and nothing else. No marriage, no husband, no children and no home! This is a ridiculous scam!
Despite what you’ve been led to believe by the twisted sisterhood, just because your daughter’s “book smart” does not mean that college should be the next step after high school. Nor does it mean that
a “career” should be the only star on her horizon. No one seems to care where the girls hearts lie. Is this all they want out of life? A 9 to 5 grind with no one to come home to? I doubt it.
For some, going away to college can be a terrifying thought. And considering the liberated, debauched and raunchy environment most universities provide for their female students, their fears are justified.
Unfortunately in today’s academic acquisition melee, no one, especially the kid’s mothers, are addressing their kids needs anymore. And so, the drone of the college rat race whirls on, denying another generation of young women the pleasure of home town, marriage, and family uncompromised by demanding, draining and damaging “careers”.
Unfortunately, thanks to second-wave feminism, most of today’s parents can’t accept the idea that their daughter may not want to go away to college. The collegiate concept has become so ingrained in our society that it leaves little room for discussion. Parents spend their lives in pursuit of a college degree for their children, in the false hope that it will somehow make them successful and happy, when in fact, it guarantees no such thing!
Parents invest all of their dreams in so few children today that the pressure to excel can become overwhelmingly stressful for their 2.1 children. One, or both, may not be up to the college career challenge, either emotionally or academically. But with so few children on whom to hang all of their dreams, these kids almost become “targets”, as their parents pursue their college-based ambitions, through them.
These too few children are forced to cope with the pressure inflicted upon them by their parents as they are pushed to do everything well – school work, sports, clubs, summer jobs, volunteering and dating, in hopes of getting into a “good” college. Whatever that means? Even adults couldn’t handle these kinds of overlapping and complicated commitments.
No wonder kids are developing a shorter and shorter attention span!! They are constantly barraged with college-bound activities, without any down-time. Kids don’t even have time to use their own imaginations because someone is always telling them what to do, where to go or what to think.
They grow up under a microscope, with their time hysterically scheduled down to the minute, all in the hopes of acquiring enough gold stars to shine on their college applications. It’s no wonder so many college kids drink and party til they collapse. They don’t know how to handle the freedom they find away at school.
Parents take the issue of college acceptance, for their too few children, very personally because second-wave feminism has put tremendous pressure on women to attend college themselves and then to send their kids, especially daughters, to college as well. The subliminal underpinnings of this psychological obsession is very strong. Unless you are becoming a doctor, lawyer, accountant, nurse, scientist or teacher, college is a waste of money. And today, even the lawyers are running out of jobs and with Obamacare, the new doctors will never be able to make enough money to pay off their $350,000 in student loans.
And despite all of the mounting evidence against a college education, mothers persist because they are especially sensitive to the reactions of their equally brainwashed, feminist friends to the fact that their daughter may not want to go away to college. They feel personal shame and guilt, as though somehow they have failed. They shouldn’t! What’s wrong with staying home and helping improve their own communities with their talents? Why do they have to be wasted on a faceless corporation or firm?
And, this “rush to college” also belies the fact that there are still many well-paying jobs that do not require a college education, including jobs that pay up to $100,000 per year. These include, court stenographers, radiation therapists, and real estate brokers, among others.
No one knows what’s best for your children better than you and your husband do. Your friend’s opinions shouldn’t be considered in this decision at all! Only you, your husband and your child are capable of considering all of the circumstances – finances, temperament, academics, sociability, worldliness, interests, maturity, confidence, etc. – in order to make the right decision. And any “friend” who would sneer at your final decision is better left at the curb.
And yet, many mothers will not let up. So, instead of graciously accepting their children for who they are and encouraging them to follow their bliss, they put them on a pathologically perverted, Pied Piper path instead, pursuing acceptance at any college, rather than acknowledging their child’s preferences and/or limitations.
This is why we have so many third-rate colleges in America that teach basket-weaving, just so every mother can tell her feminist friends that her daughter got into college. It’s an expensive and disingenuous joke!
It’s the Women, Not the Men!
