A ballerina, Spiderman, a vet, a train driver and sometimes even a sea lion: these are the jobs that toddlers see themselves in when they grow up.C'mon Ms. Castine! What's wrong with four-year-olds wanting to be Spiderman when they grow up? Till the age of ten I prayed every night to be Superman. I also convinced the prayee that I would use my powers real justly - no naughty X-Ray vision stuff. And I turned out just fine. By day I'm a disgruntled employee, and by night I write a weirdish blog.
Kate Castine, an adviser to Australia's department of education, isn't happy about this and wants four-year-olds to be more serious about their career options.
