According to a recent survey, most parents do. From Lawyers.com:
Today, Lawyers.com is releasing findings from a new survey asking parents if they want their child to grow up and become or marry a lawyer. Highlights from the survey include:
64% of survey respondents with children in the household want their child to become a lawyer.
- Moms (55%) are more likely to be interested in having a lawyer as a son- or daughter-in-law than dads (38%).
- 80% of parents with household incomes of less than $25,000 per year said they’d like their child to become a lawyer, versus 54% of those with household incomes over $75,000.
Full details are on the Lawyers.com blog. Neither of my children ever aspired to become lawyers. They thought their lawyer-parents worked too hard and that being a lawyer was boring. They opted for becoming an artist and becoming a sex educator and therapist instead.(ljs)
