Education is the most important part of your child's upbringing. We work with our kids to make sure they did well in school. We found, sometimes, with the public school education that the teachers just weren't doing their job. What we did is we brought in tutors to help the kids. I found i wasn't able to help them. Most of the time i couldn't do their homework either. We found good tutors and I think those tutors were largely responsible for them getting into good colleges. We also had with two of our younger children, they needed extra help. They needed what's called an IEP program. We had to go to school. We had to fight for the programs. We had to make sure that they got what they needed. But by being involved, we were able to do that, and all of our kids ended up very well. For college, my kids sometimes say to me, "Dad, you didn't go to college. Why should we?" And I let them know that I got very lucky. I'm one of the few people that was able to succeed without college. But they can't count on that. The safest way, and the best way today is to go to college. And I encourage them and I help them with their college to make sure they get the best education they can.
