Morning Mindbender for Tuesday 1/23/18
According to a new survey, this one specific website has the biggest influence on what kids want to be when they grow up.
A new study has found that the videos kids watch on You Tube have a bigger influence on their future career choices than books, television, parents, teachers or anyone else does. The top careers kids are interested in are doctor, veterinarian, engineer, police officer and teacher. The girls were more likely to want to go into science related jobs like doctor and veterinarian while the boys leaned toward civil service jobs like police officer or fire fighter. So be aware of what videos your kids are watching on You Tube! It could be shaping their future career choices! What do your kids want to be when they grow up? What did you want to be when you grew up? Are you doing it?
