Yes, I mean HECK YEAH!
I believe I have ALREADY inspired my children to work in technology jobs, (Three out of four of them, the fourth one works in the medical field). I can remember my children teasing me and calling me a geek, in reference to an over-heard support call or conversation with a friend/co-worker. I provided electronic interactive books and other learning games for my children at 3 years old and up. I took as many opportunities to let them "drive" whenever things needed to be fixed or updated on our home PCs. Two of my children work for one of the biggest medical software companies in the USA and the third works for a state agency as a BA for their software.
I couldn't be more proud of all four of them! The two that work for the medical software company get to travel for work on go-live/implementations and are fully aware of the blessing and challenge that encompasses. I hope to encourage my grandson to pursue technology as well.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
