Feb 27th 2010 5:12PMThe question is, "Should non-parents give parents advice?" My answer---NO--!! Did I say that loud enough? NO! It's that they don't have a point. It's that they don't have perspective. I am in the mental health field and have seen young therapists give parents the hardest time when helping them with parenting. Then, I've seen these same therapists sheepishly humbled after they've had a two year old. Kids are made cute to insure their survival to adulthood because that and the ridiculous love we have for our children are all that keep them alive that long.
Feb 26th 2010 6:09PMStudent loans are a serious trap that most students have little ability to understand at the time. I saw people taking out student loans and buying cars with them and everything else. I've got to wonder what they did when those loans came due. It all feels like easy money, but someone ought to counsel these 18, 19 year olds on what their monthly payments are going to look like when their loan comes due and how much money this quick and easy loan might cost. Of course the individual has responsibility, but if you think an 18 year old is a grown up, you've never had an 18 year old or you have a short memory for being an 18 year old. I give this young lady credit for speaking up. I heard no self-pity in her essay, just a warning. It can happen to any student who doesn't think things through carefully.
