Learning about different occupations is a fun way for kids to learn about what different people do for a living. You can base it on your child’s interests. My son loves cats. Don’t ask me why since we have dogs, but he loves visiting the vet’s office in town to see the cats. You can play veterinarian to “sick” stuffed animals (or live ones if your pets are tolerant of small children). If possible, see if you child can job shadow for a short time and see how things really work. Discuss the pros and cons of certain jobs.
