Hi 20somethings! I'm very concerned about my son and I'm hoping that some input from you all will help me feel a little less worried. My son will be 21 in November. He's in his 4th year of college with a major of psychology. He claims that its totally acceptable that its going to take him 5 years to graduate. He is much brighter than I am and has a way of telling me things so that by the time he's finished speaking I feel less informed and more confused. He has been telling me that his advisors are saying that his having a job right now isn't all that important. I am of the opinion that he should have some kind of work history so that it shows he can manage to show up to work every day and follow the orders that a boss would give him, even if its working in a fast food business, grocery business or the like (and not in the field he's studying for). Am I wrong? Am I being foolish in not insisting he get some kind of job? How did you all do if you didn't work while attending college? Was it a problem when you graduated and were seeking work? Did the prospective employers find it odd that you didn't have a job and hold it against you? Please, any input would be greatly appreciated. I love my son very much and I want him to have a good life. I didn't go to college so this is all very overwhelming and confusing for me. Thanks in advance for any advice or input you share.
