Children usually know about jobs like firefighter, police officer, doctor, and teacher. Help them learn about jobs that may be new to them.
- When you and your children are looking at books together, talk about jobs like writer, illustrator, and photographer.
- As you go about your day, talk about the workers you see and the jobs they do, such as truck driver, landscaper, shopkeeper, and waiter.
- Talk about jobs related to your children’s interests. For example, a child who loves animals could be...a vet? A dog groomer? A wildlife photographer? What else?
