Re: Things to say and not to say to kids

I think it's a fine line, because in the 70's/80's it was a lot easier to pursue a dream career (which nevertheless requires much work and perhaps a bit of luck). You could get through college without massive debt.

my son was a pretty average soccer player, he enjoyed playing with friends but not so much on the team and the he decided to try a different sport the following year. but if he had wanted to be the next Zidane at age 8, I would've totally encouraged him. really, some of these players have come out of nowhere and you see in the interviews, they had watched that 1998 world cup and being there this summer was their dream come true.
