I quite often hear from students that their parents “work in an office” as an answer to the question: “what does your parent do for work?”
A few years ago, I met with a student from Old Lyme, CT. As we were in a career counseling session, I asked her what her parents did for work so I could understand her general sense of potential jobs. She did not know and said what other students have touched upon: “they never discuss their work with me.” She also noted that it wasn’t like either of them were teachers, policemen, firemen, doctors, nurses or in other jobs that she would come into contact with in her daily life. Both her parents worked in offices and her father traveled a lot. That was the extent of her knowledge of what they did.
While I am sure that your child will not be particularly interested in having a conversation about your work, it would be helpful for you to discuss your work with your child – for their benefit.
