drgon76Is there a difference between -となる and -になる?? 
your namein the example above the と is a half of こと 「事 」
I think it is almost always になる
に as in "to" (a place). maybe sometimes its omitted.
someone native will have to answer...
MikiI don't think there is a difference between them when noun + -となる or -になる.
eg. ok 雨になる。雨となる。社長になる。社長となる。
But I agree -になる is used mostly.
bamboo4One would say 大変なことになります in stead of 大変となります.
bamboo4ざっと計算しても means "even with a rough computation" and there is no meaning to it which would suggest "Even though I budget all the time." 
Miki#5521 We usually say, 将来は、先生になりたいです。instead of 未来は. 
Agree with みきさん。 
Paty私の息子を先生になりたいです (I want my son to be a teacher) is gramatically correct? If not, how it should be said? Should を be replaced by が? 
PatyMaybe it should be 私の息子に先生になって欲しい。??? 
tigert私の息子を先生になりたいです isn`t the を miss used here. I thought that with なる the object always took the が particle?
