The Parental Influence- A Kid’s Ambitions
Some of the best conversations we have with the kids are in the car. Yup, and this is not necessarily long car trips. We just had an interesting one with the kids in a short trip to the shops. Out of the blue, Nathan decided to tell us what he wants to be when he grows up! He says “I’ve thought about it carefully already…” and as he went on, I realised much of his ambitions was due to my parenting style! The experiences he had, the exposure to life, the stories he heard etc. (BUT I really have NO IDEA how the last ambition came about!)
So here’s what was discussed!
I want to be a Magician… so that I can do amazing tricks and everyone will not know how it was done!
I want to be a Fireman…so that I can save the people from the fire.
I want to be a Blogger (this one’s new!)… so that I can go on trips and stay in hotels!
I want to be a Prime Minister (this one’s totally new!)…
so that I will have many many servants who can cook all the different food I want for my meals!!
(Sorry no pictures of Prime Ministers for obvious reasons)
I never had such ambitions when I was a kid! Read about mine here!
I wish I knew what I wanted to be when I grow up.
I love it!
I always say that if I haven't figured out what I want to be by the time I am 80, I will just retire and travel. 🙂

My son he wants to be 'Dad' (his) when he grows up! That really freaks me out lol
I love his list. I remember wanting to be a teacher, an MTV host, and a fashion designer. I never thought i would be a work at home mom and blogger. It's interesting where life takes us.
Last year, my son wanted to be a police officer. Now, he wants to be an artist – the same thing I wanted to be at his age. 🙂

Lol I love the reasoning for wanting to be a blogger.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a writer. And now I am. I also wanted to be a teacher and a pediatrician. I am now a writer/librarian/linguist and could not be happier. I also always wanted to be a mother, which I am now too!
Love the blogger one. After going to Disney, I think my oldest is starting to get it.

He really is full of ambition. I love that he said he wanted to be a blogger. I love his reasonings for all of things he wants to be.

I wanted to be an artist. My oldest wants to be in law enforcement, my daughter wants to work with animals, my 8 year old wants to work at LegoLand California and my little guy wants to buy the house next to us, play video games all day and come over for dinner every night!

Its a very nice thinking, the parent and the children relation is a bond and they are bind with each other. When a baby born in the family most of the parents think about the future of the baby and how can the baby behave with others and what type of ambition they have like them or in any other. So these type of things are very important for the parents and the baby, always learn the children about the good attitude and how can they make a good career in the future.
