35% of parents don’t understand what their adult child does for a living. 

Mom and Dad no doubt remember your childhood ambitions—but chances are they’re fuzzy on the details of your grown-up gig. A recent LinkedIn survey found that more than one-third of parents worldwide are in the dark about their kid’s daily responsibilities. (Americans are slightly ahead of the curve; only 29 percent find their child’s work mystifying.) Blame it on ambiguous job titles like UI designer, social media manager, and data scientist. “These jobs may not have existed when some of the parents were in the workforce,” says Catherine Fisher, director of corporate communications at LinkedIn. Still, 94 percent of folks are proud of their child’s professional accomplishments. Whatever they are.
