Is there any profession that you absolutely would not want your child/children to go into? What profession would that be, and why would you want them to avoid it?

I would not put any restrictions on the type of work my kids might want to do. It is their life and let them find their own way. I think it is far more important that they find what they like doing and try to make a living doing it as best they can. There is nothing worse than working in a field or job you don't enjoy or are not suited for. And I don't care what anyone else says about the type of work I might do or my kids might do. It is their choice and their life. Life is about finding joy and living to do the things we are talented to do. The only exception for me would be something illegal.

I would not want my children to be in the entertainment industry. Kids today grow up too fast as it is and I want my kids to be kids. I would like my kids to find a career that they are passionate about and I want them to get plenty of education. My 7 year old daughter wants to be a photographer!
