I do think parents should give their advice on which major their son or daughter should or shouldn’t pursue. Parents have more experience than young adults. When they give advice, it is usually backed by some real-life experience they have already learned from. So, children should head their parent’s advice. In addition, usually, it is the parents who are paying for the college education. They want their child to have the best chance at a career when they graduate so their money isn’t wasted. If they feel like employment with a particular major choice is unlikely, they should be able to express those feelings to their child. Not only should parents be able to discourage their children from making a poor major choice, but the children should listen to their warnings.
