|In her 1st year of college|
My daughter, who is very smart, does not seem to yet have a bent for college. She hasn't out and out said it, but I don't think she likes going. I wouldn't be surprised if she got her AA and stopped until later in her life. She is also a young lady who is full of surprises, so we shall see. I personally wish she'd go into cosmetology or something artsy, since that's what she loves and is inherently good at (maybe even design, which I bet would be easy for her too). She just has a knack for making things pretty. She also has an amazing singing voice and can dance like nobody's business.
My point? People are just naturally great at some things and with others they need to ask for help. One of the most challenging subjects for a good number of students in high school or college, is physics! Struggling through it just doesn't make any good sense at all, when life would be so much easier if you just hired a physics tutor! It doesn't make you less smart to hire a tutor, it makes you smarter, both literally and in terms of being brilliant enough to ask for help when you know you need it.
