Thanks all, especially YewGuise. I had a friend/coworker help pull me back from the edge by pointing out that it's awesome that she 1)figured out that writing made her happier and 2)has the courage to go that route. Amy's comments made me relook at the situation. Still not thrilled, but she needs to live her life as she sees fit.

I am biting my tongue on the going to an art school instead of a school with a broader range of majors, like we had suggested she should. But she was insistent at age 17 that she wanted to be an animator such that she put together a Powerpoint presentation as to the job market in animation! Stubborn like her mom.

At least her younger brother will be going to a liberal arts college. He learned from her.
