There is so much undue pressure on kids to figure out their career paths quite early on in life. It’s almost unreasonable to expect teens to know what they want to do for the rest of their lives when they’re just 17/18. Not everyone knows their passion right off the bat and most of them are still trying to understand themselves at this age.
It’s no wonder that young adults are still clueless in their early 20s, so much so that they resort to asking kids what they want to be when they grow up so they can get some ideas. Who said adulting was easy?
