    Just for fun. Ds9 started with automotive engineering, he wanted to make the first flying car. Then it was Navy so he could build engines on Battleships. After that we went to Vet, electrical engineer, weapons designer, inventor, karate instructor, meteorologist, astronomical engineer, bum (no joke) and now 4th generation Sun Devil football player and video game designer lol. Dd7 wants to be Queen.

    My DS10 went through a similar list which included "be a stay at home person while someone else makes the money." lol... ok. My daughter, meanwhile, goes back and forth between artist and math teacher.

    Has he seen the Terrafugia? Or the AeroMobil?? There's also the SkyCar prototype.

    DD wants to be a jazz musician. She wants to compose, perform, arrange, and jam.

    I have nothing against jazz musicians but the idea that everyone is investing a lot in her education so that she could one day make a living playing jazz in bars and clubs prompts me to have a second thought.

    When 9, DS had been following some lead Minecraft beta testers with fascination. He informed me, half smart-alec, half in hope, that he intended to "get a PhD in video game breaking".

    He was quite taken aback when I informed him that (a) he probably could; and (b) that's how his 75-year grandfather was earning a living these day (albeit with product rather more mundane than Minecraft).

    A teacher. Which is lovely, because it shows how great the teachers are.

    You're investing in her education so she becomes a happy resilient adult who's not afraid to try new things and who is interested in and enthusiastic about the world. Give me a happy relaxed jazz musician over a miserable, stressed out afraid to fail Nobel laureate any day.

    15 year old wanted to,be as a young child a real estate owner/ business owner who had "people" who ran things so that he could make money while he wrote books...he wanted to be an author.

    Now he is not so sure...math and science are easy for him but his big interest is history so who knows. Still loves reading.
