If my child is interested in something, then I would definitely help him to take it up as a career. That is actually, one of my ambitions in life.

I think if it was possible I would help them persue their hobby but also keep them learning convential things too. I might take them out of school but I would still make sure they were able to take their exams when they came along so that they would have a chance at getting another job if their hobby didn't turn into a career.

It is my job as a parent to encourage my children to excel in what they are good at. I would do anything I could to help them--take classe or whatever it would take to help educate them more. Sometimes hobbies can turn out to be a great career.
