What should I do if my parents do not approve my career choice?

What would you advice someone to do if his/her parents does not approve their career choice?


Listen to them, they might have a point.

Well… If you know it makes sense, you really have to prove it to them… Be intentional about all you do so you can get into their good books…

Dear, try and see their point of view. They may be seeing what you are not seeing because many are the eyes that see but few are the eyes that see.

But if you are very sure about your career choice, then try and discuss it with people that can talk to them and change their opinion like their parents, pastor etc.
