Parents choosing career

<p>Does anybody have any stories or opinions about following the career path of a parent rather than following your own dreams? I would really appreciate any comment.</p>

<p>Thanks</p>

<p>Well does this topic apply to you? I've realized that some families can't help but like the same thing. You might have a family of teachers or a family of lawyers, but a person should make their own decision about what they want to be. After going to so many different career options I've decided to go the Pre-med path. And a couple of days later when I tell my family I find out that my dad had tried to go that route but he had a family already so he chose to find work instead.</p>
