What do you want to be when you grow up? This is a question that every child is asked throughout their childhood. As parents, it is worth exploring your children’s answers at each stage of their lives. Naturally their plans for the future will change over the years, but each new dream says a lot about what your children value, who they see as role models, and where their passions lie. By taking time to talk with your children about their life goals, you will help them develop and hone the skills they need to weigh and measure their choices and make good life decisions that will bring them the greatest sense of happiness and fulfillment.
