2 Read Sophie's letter to the local magazine and give her some advice
Read Sophie's letter to the local magazine and give her some advice. Explain your reasons. Dear readers of "Family Life"! I'm writing to ask you for advice on a private but very important matter. My daughter is completing her school education and naturally the whole family are involved in the discussion about her future career. Yesterday my daughter said that she had made her choice and she would be a tube train driver. It sounds so weird to me! Traditionally only boys could be train drivers, and I can’t imagine my delicate girl doing a job like that! What arguments should I use to talk her out of it? Or should I accept her choice and not intervene in her life? Grateful for any comments from you. Yours, Sophie Chester
