We all love our kids and want them to be universally successful. How many times have we asked our children what they want to be when they grow up? We love our kids and we want them to follow their dreams.
Wait a minute. Do we want our kids to follow a dream that leads to no job or just a low paying job? I don’t think so. I remember a friend of mine in a competitive business twenty years ago thinking it would be good to have veterinarians in his farm stores. This seemed like a good idea so he started recruiting. Guess what? He had hundreds of applicants willing to work for minimum wage. As good parents we need to guide our children into the careers that will be most rewarding personally and financially.
Where are the good jobs today? Read the papers or go on the internet – health care, engineers, scientists, business managers, anything in technology. You can probably build a better list than I can.
We love our kids so let’s coach them for the greatest overall lifetime success.
