That’s My Mom: An Effective Career Orientation Program For Middle School and High School Students

Ronald G. Shapiro, Ph. D.


That’s My Mom is an outstanding interactive TV Game Show Style Career Development Program for middle and high school students.

The objectives of the program include:
.increasing parent/child communication
.encouraging middle and high school students to:
.learn about a variety of careers
.begin to think about their own eventual careers
.having fun!!!

Teams of four mothers and their daughters from the audience are called on stage. The moms blindfold their daughters. The blindfolded daughters ask the moms yes or no questions about their work. Moms answer the questions by holding up a YES or NO sign. Daughters are told what the sign says. When the daughters are ready, they specify which mom they think is theirs. The daughters probability of being correct is normally at chance level. Moms then explain their careers. This is an excellent program for schools, youth groups, and days when children may be invited to the workplace.
