How can we talk to kids?
What I mean is not many teenagers who complete their secondary education have a clear idea on which job they would be interested in. Worse still there is a high dropout rate in first year university students and students who switch courses. Both my children went through university. All I can say is that I encouraged them to focus on English, Maths, Physics , Chemistry and Economics. The strategy was to have as may options as possible when they selected the degree they chose to specialize in. There is a point in time when your children will be mature enough to discuss future options . It is up to you to monitor your children's abilities and even look for professional guidance when the critical point arrives. Hope this helps.

A meaningful answer to the question "what you want to be when you grow up" shows that you have long forgotten the free thinking mind of a child. If you listen more carefully to their answers, most children honestly answer something like "no idea" and "let's move on". Your question shows that this is not what you want to hear, but an honest response from a child is as good as it gets. Guiding children is as sophisticated an art form as the world has ever seen and parents are little but just jobbing painters with one extremely large brush.
