My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Scott's Career Inventory

I am sharing the report Scott wrote after taken a career interest inventory in keyboarding.  My days are filled with helping my teens write essays. Remember Scott is dyslexic and he has come along way. Sometimes I help him more than other times, but this one is almost all him. I really like the opportunity to save the boys work on the blog, particularly when it is relevent to my blog topics. I also like the blog feature to create a book out of my blog post. It would be cool for Scott if I take the best of his work and turn it into a book!

My career results are interesting. I probably got the best income jobs on the test, but I did not like them. It said that I should go in to something medical like Radiation Oncology. I am interested in having a leadership career or a creative career, but not a medical career. It’s just not my thing. So I picked veterinarian, animal trainer, game designer, and police officer. I did not like my results, so most of my careers that I picked were searched on the test. I cannot see myself being a vet or a game designer. They were just the only jobs that I liked enough. I had to put in at least five jobs so I could move on.

There were two jobs that I actually liked: animal trainer and police officer. I can see myself being one of them. Actually I only put police officer as a job because it was the closest one they had to military, but I might be a police officer too. As far as being an animal trainer that comes naturally to me I have already trained my own dog to be a canine good citizen and therapy dog. An animal training career is easy to me. I think of it as a hobby not a career.

I also want to be an inventor but that was not an option on the test. If I had to give this test feedback, I would not give good feedback. I would say that it consumes too much time. It does not give specific feedback on what kind of person you are. It only gave a basic list of jobs. This test is not a very good one and who ever does it should now that it does not always give the best results. It said that I was practical, outgoing, and influential. Practical is just the opposite of me. I am analytical. My parents are doctors and my Dad got accepted to a Radiology Oncology Fellowship. He was impressed that this inventory selected that for me.
