I am raising one (17) and have a 24 year old I raised in this country. The 24 year old is an RN that after 1 year in the normal ER got a job in a pediatric ER, which is unheard of for someone with that little experience. We helped her with her school but she worked the whole time, took her boards 9 days after graduation and had a job waiting the day they were official. She is a productive contributing member of society. I have every expectation her younger sibling will do just as well.
