Our teenage daughter started her final year of school full

Resolved Question:

Our teenage daughter started her final year of school full of enthusiasm and confidence. A very intense relationship with a young man ended that dream for her very quickly due to the controlling nature of the relationship. We now need to decide what is best for her future. There is the opportunity to do courses that will enable her to attend university without finishing school, this is where we need some advice. We are not sure whether she would be better off going back and finishing what she started or not. We would like to think that she is able to learn from mistakes that were made but are not wanting to make things worse for her.

Hello and Thank You for using Just Answer. If your daughter goes back to her previous school, is that where the gentleman was from her previous relationship?

No, but she is able to attend another school closer to home.

If your daughter will still earn a high school degree, then by all means allow her to take the opportunity to attend the university. It is becoming so hard to get into colleges these days. It would be a wonderful opportunity and a great change that may keep her mind off of the break up. Change is good. I am aware of many students that finish out their high school years at a university and love the experience.
