Chief cook and bottle washer

I am a housewife (aka homemaker, stay-at-home-mom, maid, cook, tutor....)Would I want my daughter to go into this profession? I think that the answer is yes. As a woman, I have struggled all my life in the corporate world, trying to fit into the mold of what I thought I should be. But I never felt natural in that environment. Now I have found my perfect job!

I would imagine that teachers would also answer the question positively -- that they'd want their children to be teachers, too.

excellent video rabbi

i am one of those doctors who do not want my children to go into medicine. if they want to go that will be fine. too many parents push their children into certain vocations to boost their own egos and not guide the children into fields which they probably would be better and happier in. mike

Funny, because Salomon's son does the same thing he does.

Does someone have to make Torah scholarship their profession in order to be a Torah scholar? What career exactly would they be passing on to their children? Yes, Torah is the foundation of the world, but not comparable to other careers in your personal survey.
