1) How well is your other child doing?
2) It is impossible to do a double blind study on one child. While your daughter is, by today's standards is successful, we don't know how she might have done if you homeschooled her. Who knows? By now, if she had been homeschooled she might already have a Ph.D. and M.D. combined, and not be just entering medical school in the fall.
How about something like “Hey SMinV that’s great to hear! Congrats to your daughter” as opposed to the veiled insult to both?
My other child is graduating from college next month and is happily married to a wonderful member of the military. She has brought him to Christ through her testimony. They graduated together, from public school.
She is not pursuing graduate school, as she is leaving for Germany after graduation. But then I don’t think she every will go to graduate school. She’s not the student her sister is, just a great young adult who will be a great support to her husband.
Sorry, no ‘gotcha’s’ here, in case you were hoping for one
Why? What's the rush? She had a wonderful high school experience playing in the band, softball, Academic team. She had a wonderful college experience with her music, sports, overseas travel, her volunteer work.
What's the rush to start life? I've never, ever understood that sentiment that you have. I LIKE that she took the time to discover her passion, enlarge her knowledge base, and experience what is out there.
To each his own I guess... Plus she doesn't want an MD/PHD. Probably IR - that will be a long enough road as it is what with the dual residencies.
Let's see could you possibly be any less Christian?
Try again how about something to the effect of: "WOW that is great you have every right to be proud!"
Go ahead try it I bet it won't hurt at all.
