The question of following parents’ footsteps has been discussed for quite a long time. Some people say that children have to choose the same profession as their parents, whereas others do not agree. They believe that children have to get a major that they really like.

In my opinion children should not follow their parents major. First of all, children can have different interests than their parents. For example, parents might be doctors but their children are interested in program writing. There is no use in forcing them to follow their parents’ path since they will not be happy to cure patients. Secondly, having a profession that a person does not like is going to make him a poor worker.

At the same time there are people who think that children must have the same profession as their parents. As a rule, parents know their major well and they can explain all its details to their children. It will ease children’s career.

I do not agree with the statement mentioned above. It does not matter if a person can have a good support in a particular sphere or not. The main thing is skills that allow a person to love his or her work and to be good at their job.

In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight children should imitate what their mother and father do, but in actual fact if children’ skills are different, they should have different occupation. Thus, I strongly believe young people should not follow in their parents’ footsteps when choosing a profession.
