And, in the case of your DD child, do you believe it's possible?

Daniel wants to be a zookeeper. He certainly loves animals, and is good at science in school - so academically there's no reason why not. My only concern is how he would cope socially in a responsible job where he'll have to work in a team with others and also come into contact with members of the public. We spend a lot of time at the zoo, and I hope when he's older to get him signed up for their "zookeeper for the day" experience, so I can get an idea of how he'd cope with the realities of being a zookeeper! I'll certainly do everything I can to help him work at a zoo, even if it's in more of an assistant/supporting role or something. He's a clever little boy with a lot to give and I'd like to think he'll be able to do something fulfilling.

He wants to work at Les Schwab which is a Tire shop chain up in the Pacific Northwest. Lol. He loves vehicles of any kind, he loves tires (he can tell peoples cars by their tires). I think he'd probably end up being a mechanic over just straight tires. He can build crazy things, take things apart and put them back together easily. And like I said he loves all cars, trucks and heavy machinery. I think he could do it, not many of the mechanic's I've met have been very sociable anyway lol.

Autumn wants to be a doctor some days, and an animal trainer others.. She could do either. She is smart, social enough to work with the limited amount of people she would see as a trainer. Although, I may urge her towards being a veterinarian rather than just a trainer.

A.J is still to little to tell me what he wants to do.. But he sure has a killer throw and a kick. Maybe he will be a future Quarter Back..

Fantastic aspirations!

I asked the question because one of my immediate concerns on discovering Daniel had autism was whether he would be able to perform a function in society as an adult. Not that I mind keeping him with me and looking after him/providing for him as long as he needs, but of course I want my child to have a fulfilling life and also something to keep him going after I, and his dad and my partner, are gone. I'm getting less and less concerned about it as I see him thriving at school.

Nathan said he wanted to be a rock star the other day. I have no clue what direction he will go in but I think he will be able to do whatever he wants. I also worry less and less about his future the older he gets.

I too worry less and less about the future as my kiddo's get older. Alex wants to be a fire fighter, I think it would be great with all the gear they have to wear providing deep pressure, but on the other hand I would worry about his saftey.

I just asked him. He said he wants to be the guy who fills up the plane with gas at the airport.

I think it's safe to say our kids have very bright futures!

I'd feel the same about Daniel being a firefighter...proud, but also worried and anxious for his safety.

These are all wonderful

Jonesy is still too little to tell me what he wants to be but he loves trains and cars. He also loves music and loves to dance- he's a little ham. It's so early to know what his strengths and weaknesses will be as he grows. I find it really heartening hearing that you worry less about their future as they get older. This has been something I've been struggling with lately.

Nate's BSC was here today. She heard a girl at school ask Nate what he wanted to be and he said a singer...so I think he is stuck on the rock star thing for sure.
