i will just give some suggestions but not forcing them to take it. it wil depend on their interest, for example if they love to paint or draw they can take architecture etc. but i would rather suggest a course that is more practical that they can use it for both career or business. for example BSHRM, you can start a career on this course since it is also in demand because of a lot of hotels, restaurants, food outlets, resorts here in our country and abroad or they can start a food business whether small or big..

It depends on what's in demand in the country where your child is going to work in the future. I'm a Filipino teacher here in the U.S. and I can say that doctors and allied health professionals are big in this country. I would suggest, though, that you just guide your child by giving options and the pros/cons of possible future career or employment. I believe that the child's choice is most important here. Anyway, should he/she decide on the above-mentioned in-demand and high-paying healthcare jobs, then he/she can either take the following courses: Medicine, Nursing, Medical Technology, Medical Billing and/or Encoding, or Medical Transcription. The last two mentioned can be taken as short courses or associate courses. Good luck and happy myLotting!

Some parent do not want to choose or suggest what course will their children will take in college, but for my own opinion we parents should guide our kids towhat course they will be taking, we should choose it for our kids. while the kid is still in his elementary days we should set a goal with them so that they will reach the same goal you have in mind , for example you want your child to be a doctor. You will mold him or give the child positive view of being a doctor tell him that doctors earn more money. The child will base all his dicisions from your suggestion and later will take the course you decided for him to take. always remember mold the child while he still on his younger years.
