  • I would want them to be happy and fulfilled. But maybe that is easy for me to say because there isn't much I would be strongly opposed to.

  • I'm proud and their unhappy. I hate to say that but if I'm strongly opposed to something, then it must be bad right? (Of course I want them happy, but this is just a super hard question so late at night! lol)

  • erg ... depends. if my kid was a stripper or trash collector but made a living wage, wasn't paycheck to paycheck and had decent medical/dental I'd be OK with that.

  • B. But I can't imagine him having a job that he was happy at that I strongly opposed. He wouldn't be happy with something illegal.
