Dr. Beth, I am about to graduate from high school in a month or so and I have no idea what I want to do after high school.  I’ve been a pretty good student (mostly As and Bs and a C now and then).   I always thought I would go to college right away and my parents definitely assume that I will, but I am tired of being in school and want to take a break and just get a job and have fun for a while. I have mentioned this idea to my Mom and Dad and they think it is a terrible idea. They are willing to pay for my college education now, but they said they might not pay for it if I don’t go right away. What should I do?
