Knowing about Careers (5-3-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:      Knowledge about careers will help you as a parent.

PRACTICE: Today, find out about a career your child might be interested in. To get ideas about which career to look into, ask your child, “What are three things you would like to do when you are older?”

Find out what people do in that career, the skills they have to have, the education and/or training they need, what job openings will be like in the future, and the average salary.

You can use the Internet to get information. (In the United States, the Occupational Outlook Handbook (US Bureau of Labor Statistics) is a good resource.

Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, IGGY PECK, ARCHITECT.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
