Called son up yesterday afternoon to ask if he had checked his pay stub about the federal taxes withheld. His W-2 shows an inordinately small amount withheld in relation to what he earned in 2010.
He hadn’t but told him to get with it as this means his $$$$ not mine.
In th course of the conversation, he also told me he’s probably going to change majors. The physics course he says s just too much for him to deal with and try as he says he has, he says he ‘still doesn’t get it’.
I asked if he had sought help and he says he has. I guess what I was trying to impress upon him is that I don’t want to see him give up too early and make a decision that can greatly affect what he does from here on out; his mother has done that a lot in her life, just walked away when the going gets rough.
But he;’s also nearly 20 years old and time to make his own decisions and live with the consequences, a point well impressed on me yesterday.
