Big kids and choosing classes

Usually around middle school kids can begin to choose their elective classes. For those ladies with big kids, did you influence or tell your children which ones to pick? Did you do this as they got older, say highschool age? Did your parents have any say in what classes you took?

    I would probably let my kid just choose their own electives. If they want my opinion, great... But I want them to do something they actually care about learning.
