You have a friend who wants to drop out of high school to join a rock band because he doesn’t have time for both. He feels that he will be able to make more money that way, and he can find true love with his music. He also says that he can become famous and influence people with his music. Everyone in the family thinks it is a bad idea. What suggestions do you have for your friend?
“Really? I can’t believe this. You can’t drop out of school. Very few bands ever become famous, so you have to think realistically.”
