How would you respond if you were the teacher?


Recently, in my third grade class, we were having the "What do you want to be when you grow up?" conversation.

My mom got to meet Mr. Rogers and have her picture taken with him. She thought he was great, but there were a lot of other shows she didn't let me watch.

If she's old enough to be making statements about what she wants to do in her adult years, she's old enough to explore her options.

Why can't motherhood be the first career choice and the others be a backup??

Would you want to or want someone else to shoot down the dreams of an 8 year old?

Because motherhood depends on another person in the picture to make it a reality.


Are you assuming anyone can get married at any age and begin having children?

Huh? My post was asking why your mom wouldn't let you watch Mr. Rogers.

For crying out loud, they are 8 years old!
