Question by dizzy: How to convince my parents to let me be a teacher?
Title says it all.

I have thought about becoming a high school science teacher as an option over a doctor or biomedical engineer. I have such a passion for science, and I want a job where I can use my knowledge in the service for others, and help many different backgrounds. It’s really funny actually, I didn’t even notice the option of a teacher til recently, and it’s been in front of me the whole time.

I love both biology and chemistry, but I’d figured there would be more demand for chemistry than biology.

But I have also heard other things, such as the economy being bad, bad salary, outlook not good. Money is not really an issue for me.

Also, if I had to work for a high school, I would choose my high school at the moment. Is there any bias towards applicants who are applying to the school they graduated from?

I also thought about bringing other options, such as working on the Science Research Club (where I am officer of), or maybe a Neuroscience Club. If I didn’t pursue teaching, I’d major in Neuroscience.

Problem is, my parents really don’t really seem to think it’s a good option. My mom IS a tiger mom, she wants me to be a doctor, and I do remember my dad asking me if I did consider becoming a science teacher, but that was a while ago. My mom was angry and upset when she found out I really wasn’t sure that I wanted to be a doctor anymore..

I told my older brother about this, and he told me not to do it.

Any tips?

well firstly you probably wont be able to choose what school you want to work at. It will probably be very random because you shouldn’t be very picky about finding a teaching job because they are VERY hard to come by.

If you want to be a teacher go for it, when you’re 18 your parents really have no say in what you do or say, you dont need to convince anyone besides yourself if thats what you truly want to do.

Question by list: my 8 year old son thinks that he’s from the future. should i try to convince him that he isn’t?
he claims that reincarnation works in reverse in relation to humans’ perception of time, the science of his generation has figured out how to manipulate this, and he is the reincarnated consciousness of a scientist from the year 2036 who sent himself to our time in order to dispense the knowledge that humanity will need in order to survive certain events.

needless to say, this is odd stuff to hear come out of the mouth of an 8 year old, and i wouldn’t normally consider such musings, but he displays a knowledge of advanced physics and quantum mechanics that doesn’t seem normal for a child so young, and he’s never been interested in Sci Fi movies or books.

should i A)tell he’s lying, and not to say such things (in order to avoid ridicule, and possible institutionalization)
B)make him prove it to me
C)believe him, and try to help him avoid the extermination of human kind
or D)have him write it all down, and cash in, Phillip K Dick style?
( A) tell *him* he’s lying…)
he is able to predict certain events, but only with a certain amount of accuracy, because, he says- time is like a vast network of train-tracks, and that whenever you penetrate the continuum, a new track is created with a slightly different reality map.

Question by : How can I convince my friend to watch FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood instead of nabari no ou?
They’re both on netflix and he already started watching nabari but me and her both value anime’s for the story first and then animations second. Nabaris animations are pretty lack luster compared to FMA and FMA’s story is VERYYYY original. Any other points you guys think I should make to convince him?

Best answer:

Answer by LadyGamer ローラ
Well why don’t you just let him watch Nabari no ou first, then watch FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood online if the episodes air at the same time. Then, you can do a victory dance when the awesomeness that is FMA: Brotherhood completely destroys any opinions he may have about Nabari into tiny anime pieces? :)
