There some parentswho are strict to their children, especially in choosing courses to take in college. they are the one who is giving courses to their children without even asking if the child likes it too. they don't think that their son/daughter is mature enough to choose what he/she really wanted to be in the future. the parents are only thinking of theirselves...tsk,,,tsk... how about you guyz!!!!

I pick all my classes on my own. Why would my mom pick my classes for me when I'm the one going to college for whatever I decide, that makes no sense. But yeah I choose my own courses.

Choice of course is my choice, My destiny is mine and not that of my parent. i will be who i want to be. they are just there to guid me not to make mistake. they can also make sugestion about courses but if not my suit they just have to me go and do what i want to do. if i make a mistake in doing it,i will learn from it and make adjustment if there will be any oppotunity for that. Grab the gist..........

My parents would never even think to do something so possessive to me. When it comes to the future and our own lives, education and choices, they should always be made by us. My parents have always been involved in my decision-making and they can share their views and provide advice, but in the end it's really my choice and my life =D

I always choose my own stuff. Its my life and if I mess up then its my own fault. I understand why Parents would be concerned but they are not living your life so they shouldnt choose it for you.

I make all the decisions for my school career. What classes I take, when I take them, and if I drop anything, it is up to me.

i'am lucky that my parents did'nt force me to accept thier decisions on the choice of the university.and when i heard many of my classmates were not as lucky as i,i was so pride of my parents.i don't think parents have the right to make these desicions for thier children.and remember that when you are a daddy or mum,you shouldn'n impose your ideas on your child.
