can any one help as to any ideas as to getting contact with anyone that may be able help my son to get the oppurtunity to go storm chasing , i know its a long shot and it will probably mean going to the states but its somthing ive been thinking about for my son for years now , i want him to do somthing different rather than what most kids do and work for 2 weeks in burtons or some crap like that, i mean if it did come off hell either come back terrified or hell be addicted , personally i reckon hell love it and fingers crossed it will send him in the right direction.

i really wanna go storm chasing, i think i 've watched twister far too much :P

I wouldn't think it's a good choice for work experience at all? It is a life experience, will it teach how the business side works? Will it teach health and safety? Will it teach how work mates can be? And he needs to have a relative in the US or they won't let him I believe.

What does your son want to do ? :?

Lets hope your son can spell EXPERIENCE for a start, lol.

It's something YOU'VE been thinking about FOR your son... How about you ask him if he'd like to do it first of all. Then you send him on a normal work experience, like every other kid does. Then if the storm chasing idea is a hit with him, save like mad and do it for his 18th or something.

Storm chasing is not work experience.

i worked at topman in birmingham and i was refering to my life and time , and in all due respect to others i just dont want that for my son thank you, and like i said in a previous quote i know its a long shot but id like to think even if it dosent happen it might egnite a spark , if thats ok:thumbsup:
#22
You want your son to do this?? No way I'd let my Son do something like this as I'd be to scared something could happen to him.
I'm not even going to let him walk to school on his own until he's about to leave :)

lol you sound just like my better half but yes being scared is all about been a storm chaser and rest assured id be going over with him if it happens;-)

you cant live your life through your child - you have put the idea into his head about storm chasing - if that is what he wants to do then he will find out how to do it - my son wanted to be a pyrotechnic and he went into school and asked questions until he got the answers he needed - if your child really wants to do this then he will find a way to do it by asking questions at school and going on the internet

The local authority has to do a fairly comprehensive H&S check on work experience before a pupil can be allowed to participate. I'm as certain as I can be that storm chasing in the US would not be acceptable and uninsurable.

Just go and do it yourselves if you really want to.
I daresay, however that there are very few job opportunities in storm-chasing/watching and to be a trained meterorologist, he'd be better gaining exceptionally good academic qualifications and doing work experience in as related a field as he can.

would you say that your own work experience has contributed to your limited grasp of English?

Oh and I have never seen such a stupid suggestion as the one made in the OP

I think it's fine to wish more for your child than you had, however, if he hasn't got the desire - then you are fighting a losing battle.

Is he laid back? He might be happy plodding along, earning enough money to keep him, without being extravagant!

All you can do is offer different experiences, hoping he'll grow in confidence and showing him he can expand his horizons!

I think a sports type of work experience is great for many boys - there are new soccer / football training schools popping up all over the show, tennis coaches who work independently or part as a club, personal trainers in gyms just to name a few. I would say working in a shop is more exciting than working in a boring office - but obviously doesn't pay as nicely. You're talking work experience here - I don't know anyone who went into the field they did work experience in!

My school put me in for worrk experience at a department store...

It was prolly a great decision for me as school always bored the hell out of me, it was so easy, I could never concentrate on actually doing work. Unfortunately for them or fortunately for me, exams are easy too.

I think the point was... start working or you'll end up manning tills somewhere.

I actually worked really hard at work experience but being self-employed is prolly the only way to go for someone like me.

If your child isnt given an "exciting" work experience placement, there's prolly a reason for that, I'm sure the teachers know what they're doing.
