Something I am missing here, but: Helicopter Moms: Letting them choose
Imagine my disappointment when after only one semester at the University of North Carolina, she announced she was dropping pre-med to major in classical archaeology!
“I’ve changed my mind about becoming a doctor,” she told me. “I just don’t want to work that hard.”
Suddenly I was wishing I had never taken her to see any of the Indiana Jones movies or pushed her into studying Latin rather than a modern language like French or German.
Yes, parents are usually a bit wary when one tells them one is going into archaeology. I remember mine weren’t thrilled but they accepted it when I went to Egypt the first time.
