Yes, this poll is all about what we parents want, not what the children want or can be one.

DH hopes that our kids will be traders/brokers...work super hard for some years and then can retire after amassing obscene amounts of money. (dream mah, anything goes).

To get DS1 to go for tennis classes, I told him that some pp have earned loads and loads of money from playing in tournaments (enough to buy all the toys in the world). He was mildly inspired though I think he still has a long long long way to go. :wink:

This poll is all about what we parents want their child to be at first thought. It could be when the child was first born, or first day of school when u start to imagine the future. Not about right or wrong teaching.

When she was younger, DD said she wants to become a bus driver so she can drive us anywhere. We then told her buses travel on fixed route, and she switched to wanting to be a taxi driver.

Then after a trip to the zoo, she again switched "job" to become a KFC cashier (and only at the KFC outlet at the zoo!)
