Top 10 Jobs Kids Want When They Grow Up
Top 10 Jobs Kids Want When They Grow Up

If you want to see how times have changed, a new survey asked kids between two and 12 what job they most wanted when they grow up.

Overall, DOCTOR was the top pick . . . although with the direction health care is going, that might be different with the next generation of kids.

The rest of the top 10 are:  Athlete, teacher, dancer, police officer, firefighter, scientist, musician, actor, and nurse.  What no On-Air Radio AIr Personality?

ASTRONAUT and LAWYER didn’t make the list, like they probably would’ve when we were kids.

And believe it or not, GIRLS were more likely to want to be athletes, and BOYS were more likely to want to be dancers . . . 8% of boys chose dancer versus 5% of girls.

The survey also found 1% of kids say their dream job is to be a reality TV star.

(On a sort-of-related note, a new government study found it will cost an estimated $241,080 to raise a child from birth until age 18.  That’s up 3% from 2011 . . . and doesn’t include the cost of college.)
