Ah, getting career advice from your parents can be tricky, as described in this Ottawa Citizen article:
"As a child growing up in Hollywood, Jennifer Grant received plenty of career advice from her movie-star parents.
"Ms. Grant, daughter of Cary Grant and Dyan Cannon, graduated from Stanford University with a degree in history and political science and worked as a paralegal and a chef before settling on acting as a profession. She said her father wanted her to be a composer, while her mother preferred that she become a lawyer."
What kinds of careers did your parents suggest?
