Has anybody been pressure by their parents to find a job? That happened to me recently I am still in college and this summer unfortenely I have not find a job cause of the economic situation. My parents lecturing and lecturing me about it and it is very frustrated! I mean I understand that they mean no harm but I wish they would back off a little! What do you think about this situation?

That already happened to me, right now my mom wanted to quit my job and find a much better one, I'm not earning that good enough but I'm happy with what I have now, and I enjoy what I'm doing, but I really hate when my mom do that, she's kinda hard to understand.

My mom wants me to get a job because she doesn't have any money to give me to do extra things like go to the movies, but with the economic crisis it's almost impossible to get a job with no work experience! I've applied at 9 places and not a single call!

Our mother is a housekeeper and did not tell us to find a job. She allowed us to find it in our own way. Me personally after graduating college did not have work and she do not pressure me. She said that if she insist that we have to find job, there is nonsense because we are the one who will be doing the work and if we do not want to work she can't help with it.

my mother pressured my brother to find a job. The reason was my mother had lost her job and could not longer cover this bills alone. Things were rough... my brother felt that if our younger sister did not have to work then he should not have to get a job either. I explained to him that men should be able to take care of themself. men are born with the possablity to be leaders, fathers, and husbands. and with we live in a world when women can do everyting a man can do men have not been doing there job for a long time. My brother still did not get it until after my mother sent him to live with his uncle. now he had two jobs and his trying to support himself. I still am not sure what was the light bulb for him but I hate that boy growing in to men don see what they need to man up.

I think that they are right to be frustrated by it.. Its not because you havent got a job its because they want the best for their daughter and the more experience you get the better. Also its easier to find a job when you are in one, so just apply for EVERYTHING! Dont be fussy you cannot afford to be fussy in this climate! Its much easier to find a job if if you want one too. Good luck and happy MyLotting!
