There are two things that most every parent knows:

1) Our kid should have a better life than we did.

2) Braces are expensive.

With those two things in mind, I thought I'd share something I came across today.  There are definitely plenty of 100k plus jobs out there, but most of them come with a lot of stress, a poor balance of home and work life and often little time to enjoy the things in life that your big salary can provide.  In fact, according to U.S. News and World Report, there is only one profession on their list that gives you the big bucks and low stress:  Orthodontist.

One of the big reasons orthodontists have lower stress is because they don't have to deal with emergencies.  They can set their schedule and pretty much stick to it.  If your kid is looking for ideas on what to do with their life (other than YouTuber or "Professional Gamer"), you might want to recommend they get into the business of fixing smiles.
