There are those who contend that children will show us their career paths by their play throughout childhood. Considerations such as whether they prefer solitary work or work with others will become evident through their play. This idea makes me think about our daughter Claire's early years, when she 'nursed' many family members.
The medical kit was a favourite toy. Claire tried all the equipment on everyone she encountered.
All she required of her patients was for them to sit or lie still.
Our little girl loved working with people, taking care of them.
Through her experience in high school, Claire decided nursing was for her. She focussed on that goal and continues to work as a nurse today.

Now there are two other little girls playing in our family.
I wonder what their play indicates about their career choices?
