When a child does not have any dreams or passions in life, it can be embarrassing for them. Not knowing what course they want to take in life can cause them anxiety, especially when faced with the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Because dreams do not come natural to every child, sometimes parents have to get involved. One such way that you can help is by reading books about children in the same predicament, such as “When I Grow Up: Pam Follows her Dreams” by KP Baker. In this book, Pam is faced with the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” It is an answer that Pam does not know how to answer. Pam takes us on her journey as she overcomes her embarrassment and resolves to solve her problem.
Exploring is Good
In order to find her path in life, Pam tried many different occupations by going with her relatives to work. Pam thought that she would definitely want to work in a doctor’s office like her mom or the accountant’s office like her dad. What Pam realizes along the way is that you cannot force your dreams or force your skills. You need to learn to use the skills that you were given and the passions that you have.
As you read “When I Grow Up: Pam Follows her Dreams,” you and your child can talk about his or her dreams together.
