I agree with you 100%Thumbs Up, my parents are like that too. They just want me to be happy in the future and get a well education, no matter what my career choice is.Smile

I too agree, but my parents really want me to be a doctor, but I don't want to be one.

Yep Indian parents want their kids to be engineers and doctors, but not my parents, I had a science background in school, did clear engineering entrance exam but my heart was not into it, so I opted for something different and I am enjoying everybit of it. I hope to do MBA in the future.

It is true that a lot of Indian parents want their kids to become doctors b/c you earn a lot of money, but it's not always the case.

For instance, I've always wanted to become a doctor and my parents had absolutely no bearing on this decision of mine. My parents aren't doctors at all. My mom is an accountant and she wanted me to become one, but I didn't really like it. Science is just something I really liked, especially Medical Science and then when I volunteered at a hospital I realized I really want to do this.

Although the profession pays well, I never ever would have gone into it just for the money or if my parents would have forced me to. Because if you're stuck in a career which you hate, then it doesn't matter how much you get paid--you'll always be miserable.

My advice to anyone who feels pressure to go into a certain field or profession by their parents is to just sit down and chat with them (that's what I did when I told my mom i didn't really want to become an accountant or lawyer) and explain what the positive points are in the profession which you really want to pursue. Most importantly, tell them that you will be happy. In the end, your parents want you to be happy and they will support you--you just have to talk to them.

Well, the thing is, I have absolutely no clue what i will be, i've been thinking soo much on what i should turn out to be, im thinking of being a an engineer, but I'm not soo sure if I'd be good at it, and the things I enjoy doing, are somethings that I really need to improve, I have another 3 years to think about my career so i can actually take the course in college, my parents don't care what field I take, they just want me to be happy, sure they will pressure me, becuz they do pressure my brother, but not as much because they understand how biomedical engineering is like. SO basically my parents really understand what we are going through!
