Hey! My daughter is 17 already and as all the teens she doesn't know "what she wants to be". She's good at drawing, so I suggested to look for a design college but she wants to "make money". Now, she thinks that software development is a right fit because of their salaries. I'm not sure because she was never that good in math, she always preferred creative subjects. Of course, I don't want her to be under pressure and think that I make all the decisions. How should I talk to her so that she has no hard feelings?

That's so nice that you are carrying about your daughter and you also listen to what she wants! I think you have to talk with her, hear her opinion. I am sure she will be very happy!

I think you need to give your child the right to choose. Don't be too hard. This is your child's life, not yours. She has the right to choose.
You can only support.
Of course it is difficult for children to choose. A lot is changing now. And then it is very difficult to look for a job without experience.

My son has always dreamed of becoming a pilot. And just recently, he got a license. It is a great happiness for me to see how my son achieves his goal. He had a dream and he did it. Difficulties were at the stage of job search. It was a pandemic period and there were few vacancies in the airlines. But I found an online resume writing service. He now works for an airline.
Trust and support your children
