Your children's future career (??)

February 1, 2007 12:00pm CST
If you HAD to pick your current children's future career, based on the personalities they have now, what jobs would you pick out for them? For me, I think my son would be an awesome film editor. He's really good with editing things on his computer and he picks up on new technology quickly. He wants to work in film so I think this would be a good job for him. If not that, then a comedian because he's really funny! What about your kids?

My oldest daughter (12) would defninitely need to do something in fashion. She's a little diva. My son (8) would have to develop games as he's addicted to gaming. And my youngest daughter...hmm..I'm not really shure about her...probably helping out the poor people.

Wht a fun question! Well of course I'd love my kids to be doctors, but my daughter screams whenever she sees blood--even if it's just a scrape! I would say I would want my daughter to do something creative, either with art or dance. She loves to perform, so maybe someday she will be a singer. My son loves computers, so I'd say he will be a techie of some sort.

Hehe you are a lovely mother. I am married for over 1 year now but don't have kids yet. When the time comes, I plan for my kids someday to be a doctor or lawyer. I would want them to have a good future and a good education.

I honestly see my first child doing something with sports b/c he just has the "it" factor. He's very talented in every sport so far and he's only 2 1/2. When he was 18 months old he made baskets almost every time. I could also see him in sales b/c people are drawn to him. My 2nd child will probably be something in business, maybe a lawyer. He's very strong willed and pretty smart. He's also excelled at speaking very young. He's only 1 1/2 and speaks in sentences.

What a great question. I think my eldest daughter will be some sort of entertainer as she has a great sense of humour and is always making people laugh. She is also very confident. My youngest daughter is more shy but at 2 it is very difficult to know what she might turn out to be.

okay, I am going to be a little unconventional here... For my son, a Priest of the Traditional Latin Rite. He is most compassionate, and of good character. daughter 1, would have to be something in the textiles industry as she is incredibly talented in arts. daughter 2. a mother is her vocation. whether in the religious life or secular.

My son drawing - He was 7 years old when he drew this. He won 1st prize in a county fair
Great topic... Well my son is very artistic...He can draw anything you place in front of him or even tell him how you want something done. His imagination is really detailish as well. I know he didn't get that from me, I'm still with the stick figures..lol Since the age of 5, I've been putting him in art school and also entering him into different art shows. He loves it. So far he has won 3 1st places and 1 second place... Now at age 11 going on 16 I think sometimes, he is into computers and love drawing different characters from the games he play online. If anything, I don't know exact name of this type of career but, it would be creating characters for games, a painter, or a tattoo artist (his uncle is a tattoo artist as well) I think he gets his skills from him..lol

That's a hard question. My son is only 12 months old so it's hard to decide what I think he could do with the rest of his life. I guess if I had to choose something, though, right now it would probably be acting. He started talking really early and can already put together words in 2-5 word sentences. He's also recently started making weird faces at me and my husband and then busting out laughing when we make them back. He thinks he's very funny. And since he can already portray something different than he feels, maybe acting would be a good career? I think it's probably too early to tell, though. We won't be taking him anywhere to start his acting while he is still young anyway.

I don't have children yet, but my sister has two boys and I can see the oldest one (who is 6) becoming an actor EASILY. When his class has plays he know everyone's lines and when/if someone's sick the teachers are like, "Oh, we'll just have him stand in for them. He knows their lines." And he says their lines SO WELL! And he had no reservations about performing-it just comes so natural to him! It helps that he reads on a 5th grade level too.... It's a little scary for my sister though because she really can't tell if he's telling her the truth sometimes because he's so convincing-he knows how to get people to believe what he's saying.....so that's not the BEST kind of talent I can think of! LOL! Her youngest one (2 years old) is definitely going to do something in sports. Whether it's a sportscaster or actual athlete I don't know, but he will. He started walking so much earlier than his brother and he started shooting hoops and throwing baseballs/basket balls/footballs shortly after. His first word was "Ball"!! I've never seen anything like it!!
