Many of us sent our kids out the door for the start of another school year this week! For some of us, we took our last “First Day of School” pictures with our kids that are starting their final year of high school! Some of these kids are very driven and have a clear cut plan where they want to be next year at this time – what college, what course of study and eventually what career. Others are still unsure and really have no idea what the future holds for them. As a parent, how can we help prepare our kids for the next chapter of life?
A college degree can open up a lot of doors, but it’s not always obvious how that translates on the farm. Is saddling the tremendous cost of university worth it for those planning to return to a family operation?
