Mom and Dad: An Untapped Source for Career Information.
Shapiro, Ronald G.
Obtaining and evaluating career information is a beneficial activity for high school students. Although a potential source of this information is parents, students do not necessarily have meaningful career discussions with their parents. An activity, Thats My Mom / Thats My Dad was developed to encourage more parent-student career decisions. In this activity, high school students attempt to identify which individual on a panel is their parent, based upon asking questions about what they do at work. As students participate in this activity they tend to realize that having additional career dialogs with their parents is a good idea. The author suggests using this activity as part of a Career Day or Night for a company, local high school or youth organization. (Author)
