What Does the Future Hold for my 17 Year Old?

What Does the Future Hold for my 17 Year Old?

Brett birthday 2 Today I was hit by a time-marking truck. My son turned seventeen, he’s in his last year of high school. It barely seems like I’ve been out of high school myself!

In thinking back to the advice I got at his age, I would tell my son something different. There is no such thing as job security anymore, so choose to do what makes you happy. The job you want may not be in existence yet. Go to school to learn work ethic, keep your mind and options open for the future. Better yet, create the job you want!

If you have children that will be or have graduated from high school recently, what career advice are you giving them? Has the economy or the instability of jobs changed your views?

  1. Hey mom, I don’t read your blog much, so that is why I am just stumbling across this now. Thank you so much! I know I am a couple months late, but this still means a lot. Good advice, you have helped guide me my whole life and have really never been wrong on the importance of being happy. You are an extremely good writer and person and I know it will get you really far. I actually envy your writing skills quite a lot. Anyway, I love you, and thank you so much. You’re the best.

  2. Brett, I love you and am very proud of who you have chosen to be! Thank you for the kind words, they mean a lot!
