My daughter is 16 so she's not there yet. I try to stir her in the right direction (she is amazing at Math) so I tell her she should leverage her strengths but she needs to be happy since work takes up so much of our lives.
My daughters are 22 and 20 - yes I approved their choices, they need to choose a career that they are going to love otherwise they are going to be very unhappy for the rest of their lifes. One wants to be a Teacher - she is very family oriented and she chose Teaching because when she has children of her own she wants to be able to stay home when they are off from school. The other chose Film, she loves to film, produce and edit. They are both in careers that they enjoy.
