I'm studying sociology in college but what kind of jobs involve teenagers and children?
I really want to have a career in helping teenagers and children but I'm not sure what SPECIFIC jobs there are for that. should i just keep going for my sociology degree or should i go for something more specific that involve children? i honestly don't know how to get to where I want to be in the future. I would like to work in a childrens home, somewhere along those lines. what is your opinion on what I should major in to get there?

Almost anything can benefit from at least a minor in sociology, especially if you are working with people (ie, a children's home) If you want to be a caretaker maybe nursing would be a good one. Otherwise you could be a counselor go Major psychology, minor sociology.
