  • Can't say. My daughter is too young yet, but I'll support her in whatever she shows interests in.

  • Oh I would say anything that made her happy while putting food in her tummy. She is only 2 so I am not sure what she enjoys yet. I just want her to be happy.

  • something to do with animals and science..maybe a marine bioligist or something...i would really like him to learn another language. I only say the marine bioligist because he loves watching discovery chanel and playing with animals. Who knows, he likes dinosaurs too.

  • I have careers picked out for 3 of my 4 kids based on their personality, the baby is only 8 months old so I will wait on him...my 14 yr old son is athletic and I feel he may have potential to make it in baseball, if that falls through then I want him in law school. My 13 year old daughter loves pets, she always has I can see her as a Vet, my 9 year old son a cop! We will see how these work out!

  • What a neat question!

    I think my son would be a wonderful in the areas of science and math. He is gonna be like his daddy! ;) He also loves animals. So maybe a vet or a marine biologist like one other post said.

    My daughter loves the spot light. So maybe she could be a dance teacher or a musician of some sort. She has my musical ability I believe!

  • I wouldn't, my son can be whatever he wants to be and would make him happy. Why don't you be a pastor instead of putting your hopes and dreams on your kid.

  • goodBased on their personalities and disposition: Eldest = lawyer, politician, community activist; Youngest = entertainer in some shape/way/fashion! I want them to choose, but I can't wait to see what they'll do! I'm sure I'll be as proud and awe-struck then as I am now: they amaze me!

  • My oldest son, I would love to see him as a doctor, nurse or something like that taking care of elderly people. He loves to take care of the elderly.
    My daughter, I would love to see her as a vet or vet tech. She is only 4 and already takes such good care of her pony, horses, cow, chickens and dogs.
    My oldest twin, I could see being an accountant.
    My youngest son I could see him as a state trooper.

    No matter what, as long as they are happy that is all I care about.

  • I would never CHOOSE an career path FOR my children. I just want them to be happy and doing something they love.

    My oldest twin - in college as a music ed. major - wanting to be a HS band director.
    My youngest twin - completing his Basic Law Enforcement Training - going to be a cop.

    My daughter will probably persue something in Science and Math since these are her favorite subjects - as a Freshman in high school, she's leaning towards something in Forensics.

    My youngest son is in 7th grade and is still is trying to figure out who he is. But he loves to bake, so maybe a baker or chef. He also enjoys being around people, so something in teaching or couselor.
