We all want the best for our children, but sometimes, our own ambitions cloud our judgment. A computer scientist father thought he knew what was best for his 17-year-old daughter's future, but she had other plans. The dad believed his daughter had the potential to become a great data scientist, but she wanted to pursue psychology or a business major. As they sat down to discuss her future, things took a dramatic turn. 🌩️
