So your kid wants to be an art major, huh?
Don’t freak out; it’s not as bad as you might be thinking. Slow your heart rate, take a few deep breaths, and check out how you can help to prepare your child for their path down the road of humanities.
Support Their Dream
One of the worst feelings a child can have is to feel they’ve disappointed their parents. As a parent, you never want your child to feel this way. They’ll get some grief from other people for their educational decision; they don’t need it from you. For this reason, it’s vital that your child feels you support their dream to get a college degree in art. It’s acceptable to ask them questions such as why they want to pursue this degree, what form of art they are passionate about, and what they plan to do after they graduate, in order to get both some answers for yourself and get them thinking about their future as an artist.
