I don't want my daughter to be a dancer

Published:Tuesday | August 18, 2015 | 8:00 AM

My daughter wants to do creative dancing for a profession. How can I change her mind?

A: Have your daughter sit with a career counsellor and look at her skills and talents. If she decides to pursue dancing, let her sit wit a business counsellor to learn how she may earn from her talents.

I am concerned that when my son's CXC results are here, he will have failed. How do I prepare him?

A: You can start looking at options, but wait until you get the results before you plan.

My son, 25, is teaching my 15-year-old son to drive behind my back. Now they are both angry at me. Am I doing the right thing by stopping this?

A: Let the boys know that their safety is what is most important to you.
