About This Quiz

Every parent wants the best for their kids. You have a vision of what your child will be like, what their life might be like, and you do your best to nurture that dream. Of course, as the child grows, things are going to change. One kid might have a real affinity for artwork, another may be an exceptional athlete. One might be a whiz when it comes to math, and another might be amazing in the kitchen. No one can know the future for sure, but you can make some guesses based on the available information about where things might go and how they might turn out. 

Knowing what you know about yourself and your own family, as well as how you plan to raise your kids and what you might do to encourage them, do you think it's possible that we could hazard a guess as to what that child might end up doing for a living down the road? Well, you'll never know if it's possible unless you give it a try. So answer a few questions and let's see if we can't use our powers of prognostication to figure out what the future has in store for your child's career. Take the quiz and see!
