Lately we have been bumping heads: FYI we have been discussing your career goals with you. You have been very vague and indecisive. Now I am not sure what you talk about with your friends and I don’t care. When you step your feet over this threshold, we expect you to act like an intelligent individual with common sense. If by the time you graduate you have not made a decision about what you intend to do after high school. You are essentially putting that decision in your father and I hands to make a decision for you. We will be helping you to make a final decision for your next five years in pursuit of your career. I mean it! I don’t care if your 18 yrs old…the deal is you still live in our house. We still provide for you, therefore you don’t have any real decision making authority. You have not done anything in life to feel like your really an adult…don’t take me there. Unless your moving out and we know you don’t have a real job to provide sufficiently for your lifestyle.
We are not going to pretend your an adult either. Your not privy to that and why would you expect us to lie to you about adulthood. You don’t get to pretend and be boss in another man’s house. That would be disrespectful to the real man of the house and his queen ain’t having none of that….there is only one KING in this castle. Therefore if I was you I will take us literally before you find yourself in a situation that will require you to step up and become an adult real quick. Now if you decide you don’t want to complete high school and your sabotaging your grades. Then you will be going into the military or getting your own place. I strongly suggest you get your mindset in order for West Point and your SAT scores up. Don’t come into our home talking to the left either…we don’t play that. We love you and you know we have very low tolerance for nonsense. We will be attending West Point with you to hear and probably accept the official offer.
Per Coach Brock: Your offer is contingent that you completing High School and your SAT scores improves. Unless another college is calling you with an official offer by the time you graduate (MAY). West Point is where you will be attending. Now if you think I am out of pocket. That’s on you, you were given three choices to pursue starting in middle school. College, Audition to be a singer, model, actor, owning your own business providing your wrote a formal business plan or the military. That’s it!
The window of opportunity becomes narrow as you approach graduating from High School. We did not promise you that we will be a provider of your basic needs as an adult. We expect you to pursue a career that would help you become the man of your house and sufficient enough for you to be the provider for your family. Now I feel the need to write this and send it to you in social media. Your head is always in Facebook, chatting online and looking at email. Do not allow outside influences to steal and destroy your hopes and dreams. Do not be delusional into believing that your going to college to play football.
Students go to college to learn. To obtain a higher education. There are no guarantees. You will be allowed to pursue extracurricular activities providing you maintain a certain GPA set forth by the college policies. If you were not able to play football again….what will you be doing? Something to think while you still caught up on the last touchdown. Your only as good as your last play. Do not think because I am not interest in football like you are that I am not interest in your career choices. You played football in our house because we let you participate in extracurricular activities. There is an expectation that your going to learn and pursue your academics at a higher learning institution. Your a working class young man and that means you must work for your American dream. A football player career only lasts up until they are about 30 years old if they are lucky…not everyone gets drafted. High school football is nothing in comparison to college football. The coaches will retrain you to play the way they want to…you will spend at least 8-16 hours in pursuit of academics as a full time student and you will probably only practice football 3-5 hours. Getting a full ride to a college is like getting a salaried job….you must perform to maintain the full ride. A lot of high school athletes are delusional into believing that the college is giving them a full ride simply to play football. Coaches are not being candid about this….YUP! I said it!
You see that expression on your face in the third picture….that is the same one you will be wearing if we have to get really real with you up in our home because you wanted to sabotage your future aspirations. You will not like the conversation and you will be salty. You will be putting us into a position to keep 100% as you embark on a journey into adulthood. We will not have any sympathy for bullshit nor will we let you sit up in our crib after High School and start a family. NOT! IF there is anyone, any parent out there that don’t like what I am saying…that’s on them and you can move in with them. After you eat them out of house and home, give them attitude, talk out of pocket, raise your voice, they buy your clothes and have to transport you. They will kick you out….trust me!
I am going to give you the opportunity all the way until May to step it up or we have the last word. I suggest you get focus and do what I have been suggesting if you plan on going to a private or public institution. We expect you complete your school work, SAT’s and show the damn respect in our house when your father and I ask you a question. Between PMS and being responsible for our own lives…..my patience is real short for sacarsm and an out of pocket response. If you raise your voice….trust me I am going to be louder than you and if it gets out of hand..well! You already know how that can end and no you can’t take your clothes, bedroom, not even a toothbrush…men can handle their own business. Happy learning…and we will want our housekey, you will knock on our door like a visitor…that is if ish go to the left. In meantime, we love you and we expect for you to fall in line and complete a journey like your older brother…MUAH!
I meant what I said when I said all conversations with any coach comes through me and my husband going forward. I don’t like what you have been doing lately and I am not hearing the information that I want to hear… adult to adult conversation from this day on. If a coach calls my house and I hear about it..I am contact the college to deal with it! The coaches who are calling our home are distracting you from completing your assignment and completely have been wasting your time.
