Profession options

One of the things I ponder on a relatively regular basis is what profession my non-motivated, dyslexic and artistic son can do when he grows up.

Tattoo artist. Its an honest living. I was thinking that or welder or something. He could sculpt. I had an ex-boyfriend who sculpted stuff with his blow torch. It was pretty cool. But, I digress.

Not that I'm fixated on potential ways my son can live on his own, without his mom's financial support, when he is an adult. Isn't that far in the future. He'll be 12 in September. Lord help me.

    I ponder the same thing - kids need encouragement - find something he's good at and push him and he'll be fine. Oh and pray!

    I often had the same idea about my middle son, who was wearing bifocals at 14, and could not pass his driver's license test. He is now age 23, learned the bus system and/or rides his bicycle, and has a job as an assistant manager at a restaurant to get the health insurance coverage.
    His real work is tutoring Math to Master's degree candidates, and writing grant proposals for research on umm, some Math project. Which he and his geeky partner should be able to patent soon.
    And his girlfriend was offered a job at Google.
    So, give your kid a dozen years or so, and he will probably turn out quite alright.
