What jobs can you get if you major in computer programming?

I'm currently 15, freshman in high school, and I've always been interested in programming. I know HTML, PHP, Java, and C++. However, my mother says that it's hard to make a living majoring in computer sciences, and I want to see how true it is. If it really is hard, what jobs would suit someone who enjoys logic and problem solving? Thank you!

Your mom is wrong. IMHO exactly opposite is true. For a good programmer sky is the only limit. As long as computers are there programmers will be required. If you really enjoy it, my only suggestion will be to continue exploring and learning new languages. Try to become an expert in atleast one. C++ is good.

Your mom couldn't be more wrong. Computers are EVERYWHERE, EVERY company in existence can make use of someone with a degree in I.T., it's one of the top 10 highest demand fields and will remain that way as long as there are computers.
