This generation of children have the world at their tiny feet and their biggest worry is how they are going to achieve all the things they want to when it comes to jobs and careers. From actresses to astronauts, zoologist to zip wire performer (is that a thing?) they really could do anything they want to if they (and you) put their minds to it. Most of us have been brought up quite traditionally and generally aspired to university, teaching, banking etc We were not really encouraged to dream big and to be honest I’m not sure we really knew what amazing jobs are out there. So, for many of us when our little ones announce that they really, really want to be world renowned scientist or the next Steve Jobs we sometimes worry about being too encouraging and don’t want to set our children up to fail. But if this year has taught us anything it is that we have to live our dreams, whatever, they may be and maybe it’s our job as parents to help our children to dream big and see where their big ideas might just take them!
