Sometimes I get nervous that my kids don’t have what they need to succeed in life.
- I have tried to give them every opportunity for success, but you never know what they will decide to do with every card they’ve been dealt.
In particular, I’ve worried a lot about my daughter. She is a bit… out there… when it comes to real world responsibilities and romance. That’s why it was a massive surprise the day that my daughter expressed her desire to attend the local trade school. I won’t lie, when she talked about indoor air handling devices and HVAC repair services, I was skeptical, to say the least. I couldn’t grasp the concept of my little girl running around AC units in a huge tool belt. I mean, other than touching the thermostat pretty often, I never once saw her near our air conditioner, or furnace. But she went on her merry way, nevertheless, signing up for the local heating, cooling, and air quality control repair courses. I didn’t think it was a bad idea because an air quality control license would always be valuable. But should she work with AC units and furnaces every day? Was she going to be taken advantage of? When she attended her first heating and cooling system repair class, I really expected to hear negative reviews about the heating and cooling equipment and the professor of the air quality control system course. But I was shocked when her complaints never came. In fact, it turns out that she loved her heating and cooling repair courses more than anything… mostly because she was dating the teacher.
