Vincent Kane Posted about 2 years ago 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.
