During a recent presentation at Georgia’s Future Education Association FEAST conference, I asked students how they feel on a scale from 1 (low stress) to 10 (extremely stressful) when mom or dad asks them what they want to do with their lives professionally. While several confident students replied with one or two, others answered with ratings such as nine or 10. A few even replied with 12!
