I want my kids to do what makes them happy, but I´ll definitely be encouraging them to think about being their own boss. Since we are going to be homeschooling, I plan to make that part of their curriculum!
My oldest (2), is very artistic and loves books and reading. He´s already trying to write and sits for hours "reading" books. I hope that continues into adulthood. I won´t push him to be a writer, but since that´s what I do, he´ll have a good model.
The little guy is one in a week and he is purely physical, climbing and throwing and doing things with his body and showing very little interest in sitting still for any length of time. I´m thinking he might pursue a more active career, like being a soccer player. Who knows.
My husband is a musician and he is really, really hoping that the boys take up music. It´s been in his family for something like 6 generations!
