In my childhood I was interested in joining army. Having lived among them, I was inspired to be like one of them. But my father didn't encourage me in this as he felt it was not a safe job for women and I also didn't pursue it seriously. After my post graduation, I took up teaching profession and am now enjoying it immensely.
I think teaching is also a good profession. If you are contributing for country then its a like army service . Keep it up but encourage your children to fulfill his or her dream instead of adjustment because life is one .
