The every kid a college graduate is a 1970s hippiefied utopian myth.

The fact is some kids simply are not intelligent enough to attend college.  Others have the intelligence, but don’t have the discipline it takes to commit to four more years of self-motivated study.

Does it mean your kid is stupid?  No, it does not.

What it means is that your school’s guidance counselors may be highly delusional, selling hopeium in a pipe that just don’t smoke.

So what sir would you recommend?  Well, try this on for size.

First take your kid to visit military recruiters from each branch of service.  You will be amazed at the range of career fields.  Navy Nuclear specialists are in high demand.

Have your kids watch every episodes of Dirty Jobs, and if they are spending hours on YouTube, then type in the following search terms in the YouTube search box:

  • high paid jobs you never heard of
  • high paying jobs without college
  • trade jobs that pay more than you expect
  • high paying jobs of the future

Once the kid finds something to his liking, it is then time for the parent to do everything in his power to ensure he has the opportunity.  This means driving over the Navy base and tracking down a diver, or taking them out to the job site where the pipe-liner is operating the side-boom, or arranging a day out with a group of surveyors on an engineering crew.  All you have to do is ask.  You will be amazed at how many good people are out there in the American work force and willing to mentor your kids.
