You can be anything you want to be...if
« on: February 11, 2019, 02:12:43 pm »
You have an education.


My son-in-law. He's a decent kid, really hard start in life. He's a shift manager at a local store. He wants to do something different. Wants a more family-friendly job. Wants one that makes more. You know the song and dance.


However, from my vast experience in adulthood, you have to have an education. Minimum of GED. Which he does not have. I try to tell him that but I don't know anything, I'm just one of the masses who follow the government blindly....blah blah blah. He posts all the time on fb his thoughts on the government....

I agree a basic education is a necessity if he wants to do anything at all. What does he think he wants to do?

Not everything is going to require  a degree, but it all depends on how hard he's willing to work and what kind of work he wants to be doing. He also needs to keep in mind that family friendly and lucrative are often mutually exclusive.

It definitely helps but my husband doesn't even have a GED and makes decent money. Of course he's been doing what he does for over 20 years too so.....

He can go work in the local factory and make decent money, but he doesn't want to do that.

Yeah, he's kind of limited to back breaking blue collar jobs without an education. My husband loves what he does and he's good at it so it works for him but if he was unwilling to get his hands dirty he would have a problem.

Why doesn’t he have a GED? He could make good money if he went to at least trade school.

Lack of motivation? Not really sure. I've given him the number to call for it. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink it.

Both of them are just frustrating. If they didn't ask for help financially I would say it's their life to live. But when they constantly ask for help it gets frustrating.

Have you told them no more help unless they give you a game plan?
