I wish my DDs were as motivated as those of other posters!
I feel sorry for them really because with a few notable exceptions most jobs are rubbish
Oh dear Magwich 2, do you really believe that?
I like my job.It pays badly but I know that my students appreciate me and I am helping people.(you may think me one of those priggish types you complained of in another thread
My OH loves his job which is of a vocational nature too.I just tell my girls that "you are a long time working,(prob age 70 retirement by the time they get there.
),find something that fulfills you to some extent".Their education gives them the choice.
Sure ...there are plenty of times I wish we had more money but still wouldn't trade places.Would you not encourage them into more, for want of a better word, vocational forms of employment?
Probably you think me too idealistic....
