As a parent, would you rather have your child follow his talent &/or passion, having


a career based upon that component although such a career doesn't pay very well or would you demand that h/she forego his/her talent &/or passion, telling him/her to have a career that pays exceedingly well even though such a career is in an area that h/she isn't interested in or even hates?

    How exciting that ur son became a professional dancer! How proud U must be, Yves! I always held the dream at least 1 of my 4 sons would land on "Stage" (singing, dancing,artsy entertainer) Alas, they're all successful & happy but no stage 4 Mama!

    I agree with Kevin. I became a teacher for economic reasons, not that I made a lot of money but my income was steady. After 65 years old, I started writing (my passion) and recently published my first book. Am now working on the second one.
