Listen Cade, I know you're trying, but you need to try harder because you just failed another test!
Cameron failing her class
I'm sorry Cameron, but you're failing this class. You need to try harder because soon you're going to be a stay at home mom.
Me too sweetie. I mean it's nice taking care of the children but I just want something more out of life. I want to become a businesswoman.
Honey, I don't think I can do this anymore. I hate my job!
Cade Cook is 15 years old and just failed another test in his engineering class. Cade is not particularly interested in engineering, however, he wants to be like his dad who is an engineer.
Mom, dad, we need to tell you something.
Cameron Cook is 11 years old and is failing her family consumer science class. Society is telling her that she has to be good at cooking and cleaning. However, she does not like to do those things and wants something more from her life.
Well we are disappointed in you both, but it is not the end of the world. Cameron, if cooking isn't for you that is completely fine.
And Cade maybe engineering isn't the right path for you. But we would like to see you both try harder.
Charles and Catherine Cook are a married couple who both do not enjoy their jobs. Charles is an engineer and Catherine is a stay at home mom. Catherine wants to be a businesswomen and Charles wants to be manager of a company. Charles feels like he is just going through life and not really living.
I think I am going to go get a job interview tomorrow!
That's wonderful hon! I think I am going to quit my job and try to become a manager in a business!
Cade and Cameron decide to tell their parents what is going on and hope that they do not get too mad at them.
Cameron is failing her family consumer science class and I am not doing well in my engineering class.
Charles and Catherine are very understanding towards their kids not doing the greatest in school right now. This is because they know that society puts pressure on to their kids that make them feel like they have to be good at a certain subject. For example, society is putting pressure on Cameron to become a stereotypical housewife. Both the kids feel relief because their parents did not get very mad at them.
Both the parents feel relief and are excited to see what the future holds now that they have an opportunity to do something they actually like.
