    Lol. My husband has always argued too many academically educated individuals lack practical skills for living. With this in mind the highest earner amongst my older children is the one with the least academic credentials & the greatest practical skills. He has chosen to work in an area he loves & happens to be very good at it. I do think the bigger picture needs to be looked at & part of training a child in the way they should go lies in determining what they are inately good at & helping them develop thse skills. rant now ended.
