Each week, The Huffington Post presents a compelling topic to spark discussion at your dinner table.

This week is the perfect time to think about what you want to be when you grow up. On Thursday — the 20th annual Take Our Sons And Daughters To Work Day — parents across the country got to show their kids what they do at work every day.

There are many ways to determine what type of work might be right for you. Consider the activities you like best, your favorite subjects in school and the careers of the adults around you. Your dream job could be something you haven’t even discovered yet! Tonight, let’s talk about finding the work that fulfills us.

Questions for discussion:

* What do you want to be when you grow up?

* What kinds of things should you think about when choosing a career?

* Think about the jobs held by your own parents, your friends’ parents, and other adults in your life. Do any of them appeal to you? Why or why not?
