Is deciding your career at a school age too much pressure for teens? It is safe to assume that the majority of teenagers lack vital life experience, and are in general fairly naïve to the way life is outside of a school environment. Children are constantly bombarded with questions like: what do you want to do when you’re older? Who do you want to be when you grow up? These examples are innocent in nature but occasionally create a lot of stress for the person at the receiving end of the question. The majority of kids struggle with deciding what they want to eat, so why have we as a society decided they have to decide the rest of their lives at a young age as well? Deciding a career is a particularly stressful event for anyone, especially when you really don’t have a clue about what you want to do tomorrow, never mind the rest of your life. Common advice given to kids who are choosing a career is to go off of your strengths and interests however, what you like when you’re 15 won’t exactly be what you’ll like when you’re 30.
