Our youngest is a Pathologist, in part for the better Quality of Life (scheduled days and work hours) that specialty often affords the Doctors.

Our neighbor's daughter is an Emergency Medicine Doctor, in part for the benefit of a known work schedule - even if she gets placed on night shift occasionally.

It's clearly one of the most highly compensated occupations. Still, you go through a lot to get there and it clearly isn't for everyone.

Anyone who would push their child into a career the child doesn't want to pursue is a fool. The two most likely outcomes are that the child will not be successful or the child will be successful and unhappy. Would you choose either one of them for your children?

Not often. The average is less than half of that number.

I have a friend who is a doctor. Gets to tell people they are going to die pretty often. . .

Not a job for me.

You could choose for your child to become a loser and join a left-wing protest group like occupy Wall Street or ANTIFA.

Pick your poison.

No thank you.

Video game industry weather you design or play is based on addiction of mind, emotion and as such
is not a long term healthy profession. Money is not everything.
