Excelsior College 47th Annual Commencement - 12 Year Old Graduate
#11
My 15 year old daughter is enrolled at Excelsior. She will graduate in a few months as she has over 100 credits already. My 14 year old son just wants to play soccer and college doesn’t even ring a bell yet so I know he is not ready. My 12 year old daughter is very studious and learns quickly. She has 30 college credits and will enroll in Excelsior soon. My daughters simply enjoy learning and can do it at a higher level so why not? My 14 year old son is so not ready, has zero credits but is an excellent soccer player. ?

She sounds more intelligent than many folks I see.  I think you are wrong in her case.  Watch the video.

I watched the video again. Maybe I'm changing my mind, she seems very self-confident and intelligent for her age.  But did you hear the interviewer at end?  She wants to do environmental engineering; her mother wants her to be in the the space force?

What's wrong with those career/educational aspirations?

I am not sure what environmental engineering even is?  

Her mother is thinking maybe the "Space Force" that Trump was trying to get DOD to start?  USAF does not want the competition and all the services want a piece of the space action.  A 5th DOD service would take it all away from the other four?  The Army has Space Battions now.

It is not uncommon for parents to be way less educated that exceptional kids.
