how do I tell my parents I want to switch majors?

My parents have never accepted the major I want to pursue, which is Music Management and Merchandising because they do not think I will make money. How do I make them understand money isn't everything? #life #parenting

RENE M’s Answer

Outline for your parents the opportunities available with a degree in Music Management and Merchandising, including income, job availabilities. Also include the probability of landing your first job in that field based on your grades, professor recommendations, etc. Then put together a budget of how you can self-sustain yourself in this field and not be dependent on your parents to subsidize your living expenses. If you have enough money to cover you living comfortably without their support, I'm sure you'll all be happy. Best of luck.

Wael’s Answer

How about you do some research showing the progression of that career, expected time to reach your goals, expected pay from that career, and the growth rate of that very position. Put them all in a powerpoint and try to convince them.
