Should Parents Be Choosing Careers For Their Children.
The most problems faced by some of our children these days comes from the way parents handle their children.
It is not strange in nigeria or even in any part of the world that successful parents would prefer and even want their childrens career choices to be similar or if not the same like theirs.
The act of choosing a career today by children is gradually been influenced by their parents. Sometimes parents prefer choosing career for their children than allowing the child to make his/ her choice career.
This bad character by most parents theses days is a life threatening one as a child may loose his/her gifted destiny trying to please his/her parents by following the career choice they made for him/her.
Every child ought to be allowed to follow his/her mind and choose a career best fit for him/her.
Little do they know that they go about it the wrong way. They don’t ask their children on what they are interested in, advice them and make them follow their passion but we can’t blame them because some children don’t have dreams or goalset of what they want to achieve in life.
This has affected many children into making bad career choices and end up doing what they don’t like, something they are not interested in just to make mummy and daddy proud of them. Though it sometimes turns out to be a good thing for them and even the best.
Parents stunning in to choose a career for their children is not good, and the implications is so sever as it can lead to the total downfall and failure of the child in his/her life pursuit.
Parents shouldn’t be choosing careers for their children. They are to guide and direct where necessary also offer support not to make the choice for them. They shouldn’t use their children as a means to fulfill their unfulfilled dreams and remember they are teaching responsibility so how can they be responsible if they don’t make their own choices.
Advisory role is the sole responsibility of every parents in their children’s life, not making choices for them by themselves as God created everyone different with different gift of destiny.
When a child is allowed to choose his/her character freely without any one making choice for him/her just believe me that child will grow and feature his/her career excellently.
