    I was wondering are there still such tendencies that you have to follow the career path which your parents have prepared for you regardless what you are really passionate about?

    I hope not, otherwise my life is going to be full of crappy jobs. Though saying that, my mother did manage a pre-school for a few years which was really cool, except for the fact that I don't particularly enjoy small noisy children.

    Hahah.. I was trying to emphasize the point that if your parents want to see you as a lawer , you got to become a lawer

    Only in certain households where the parents want their child to be a lawyer or doctor...

    My parents have been extremely supportive in my career choice, and I would say they're proud.

    Do I have to? Not at all. But if you are uncertain about your career path, then it's definitely worth considering their input.

    This interference is very possibly more common in non-indigenous British families.

    My parents are Indian, therefore going down a non-academic route was never an option for me. :lol: They would try to talk me out of it (that's if I did go down a non-academic path), however they wouldn't force anything upon me. From a young age my parents told me to go down the medical, finance, law, engineering path, and from what I have decided to do, it looks like I will go down that path. So yes, I guess my parents had a big influence on me.

    Wow, that's one of the responses I was hoping to get.
    I really grateful for your story
