Do your parents disagree with your career choice?

I'm having an issue here, my dad is kinda neutral, but my mom wants me to be a doctor, but I want to go into the Information Technology field. Most of my family doesn't understand computers, and doesn't plan to. I figure if I can't explain my job well, might as well not do it.

Like i want to be an actress or dancer.. so yea... my mom says anything i love i should do.. my dad says that to but sometimes i feel that he wont like my career

Parents should never disagree with your career choice. They should support you 100 percent, unless you want to be a stripper or something weird

They don't really care, as long as I am successful at whatever job I'm in.

What if you aren't successful? Would they still support you if you were poor and happy?

If ObamaCare continues without repeal, doctors will become one of the lowest paid of the Professions as they come under government control. So tell your mom to either vote Obama out or get off your back.

They want you to have the best future you can have (all good parents do), but that doesn't mean you shouldn't follow your own dreams. If they really love you then they will give you full support of what you want to do and your dreams.

My dad is pretty mad at me because I'm going into the Marines. I don't understand it at all, I will become a better person and learn values that I can use for the rest of my life.

my parents dont,but then again i dont have a career..i work at a restraunt.but your choice is very smart,and at least you arent settling for a dead end job.your parents think they know whats best for you,and sometimes they do.but when it comes to an actual career-make the choice yourself,and work hard at it to succeed
