Thanks for the read and response Marjorie. I could not agree more.
I watch parents worry and try to control outcomes. I listen to stories of why one college is better than another. I see puffed chests and bewildered looks and — I wonder — is there enough time and attention spent on helping kids recognize their interests and potential calling(s)?
Do their choices have to be safe and put them in a box?
Gosh I hope not.
The woman who cuts my hair has a degree in education. Within a year of teaching, she decided it was not her calling. She’s now a happy hair stylist. It cost her a lot of money to find that out.
