    Cut a long story short my parents thought I was going to school but realized I was not going

    Now that they know they are literally forcing me to go to college and university

    I dropped out due to mental health issues and my parents are immigrants.

    What should I do? Who is in the right?
    As a previous poster said, both are right both are wrong. I agree with you in that you shouldn't be forced to do anything as an adult, but I am assuming you're 18 or 19 and tbh mate that isn't old enough to know how the world works yet. I hope I'm not coming across as rude, I don't mean to be patronising. They shouldn't be forcing you to go to college, but they are also well within their right to say legally you're an adult now, you can continue living with us if you want to to but you have to uni.

    So many people who are 18-19 now will have degrees coming out the ass in a few years time, university qualifications don't carry the same prestige they once did. If your parents are immigrants and have this stance with university study, there is a very good chance that the chance of getting university qualifications was something to be aspired to in the highest order wherever they are from. I'm assuming you're in the UK, in which case you're in one of the very best places in the world for education and people who didn't grow up here are much more likely to value the opportunity to study here so much higher/

    They cannot force you to do one thing or the other, they can only stop supporting you if you don't. they want you to have a privileged and successful life and university is a good stepping stone towards that so they aren't wrong to make you go. I don't think that you'd regret going once you have a degree, but if you really don't want to go then they cannot make you.
