Kids Confess: I Love My Career, But My Parents Don't Approve
Our parents typically want what's best for us. That's why sometimes their feedback sounds a little harsher than they mean to. However, it can be really difficult when they aren't on board with your career or job. After all, we spend most of our time plugging away at work. These people open up about their parents' dissatisfaction with their current position. These confessions will remind you that there's nothing wrong with following your heart.

The internet is a crazy place.

My parents don't approve of my following on the Internet and keep telling me to get a job. I don't know if I should tell them that the Internet is actually my job...

Pets > People

I'm going to be a vet assistant. My father disapproves of my choice as I won't gain lots of money. 
Sorry, at least I will never hate my job...

Clapping back.

My parents don't approve of my career choice because it's not a steady paycheck, it's commission. What they don't realize is that I'm 20 and making more than them combined.

You only live once.

Decided not to go to college to start the career I want. My parents don't approve of me becoming an actress.

Sometimes you just have to follow your heart.

My parents don't approve of my career choice. They think I won't make enough money to support a family, so they won't help pay for college. I'm not even asking them to pay a quarter of the tuition.

Changing lives doesn't always pay the bills.

My parents define success by how much money you make at your job. I want to work with fosters kids- I know they don't make much money, but that's where my heart is. Sadly my parents don't approve :(
