Hi,

If we are to give the importance and assign a great role in student’s education and the Career thereafter, it is nobody else but the parents itself will be at the helm of affairs and who have potential to drive and shape the life of their wards or children. It is a well-known fact that there is no single move by students in terms of Education and Career which has not been impressed by the parents. But, for sure, we have ample and a lot of such examples that Parents always perform a lion’s share in the development of their wards.

There are two sides we can ascribe to this topic as there may be a negative side too. Usually, as we consider, parents perform the role of motivator and inspire and support their children in their development toward career achievement. But sometimes, we may come across the circumstances where the parents had overshadowed their children’s freedom in decision-making thereby let them underperform in the field which has been forced to pursue by the parents. Let’s explore the facts and possibilities.

Positive Role By The Parents

Let’s discuss some of the aspects how parents can be decisive performing positive role in their children’s education and career.

  • Choosing Education Streams: We know, in educational life, everyone is supposed to come across the time period when it comes to choosing the right stream after 10th as like in India. Up to 10th Level of academic education, there remains a common education pattern with no more differences than the medium of the teaching and learning and the education boards for conducting exams. Owing to the immaturity of the students at this level of education, parents can have a great and decisive role in choosing the right stream after 10th of their children. After students are supposed to opt for Arts, Commerce or Science or even direct vocational and professional education. Going randomly for streams may harm the career of the students in the future. Educated parents help their wards take informed decisions and go for the right

 

  • As a motivator: Who else can be a great motivator than the parents itself! Parents, right from the nursery education of their wards until they are about to step in the career chosen, will have been performing a role as a motivator. Parents would praise their children on every single achievement in academic years. When children come under stress due to any reason the parents will be there to relieve them off that very stress letting them have the insight of new possibilities. Thus the parent’s role is more significant owing to the importance of motivation and its good effects on the educational life of children.

 

  • Moral Support: Parents do become support and help for their children at moral level letting children have enough confidence to go further and excel in education. Children though we may feel it is not a big deal, have to go through many phases of decision making. At every small good decision, if they are backed by the parents morally, children will have their performance boosted at many fronts. The Parents role as a moral support to their children bears sweet fruits when the children, day by day gain confidence and ace in the chosen field of career.

 

  • As a Friend, Philosopher and Guide: The child who gets in parents a friend, philosopher, and guide, will always achieve more comparatively as the right guidance with the love and care has the potential to make things happen surprisingly. Educational life is nothing but the series of learning, trials, and errors where the parents can become great help as a friend, philosopher and guide in their ward’s educational and general life. The sense of security and an ample freedom in social are a few things which children need for a good reason and very easily get from their parents only to make advances in educational and career life. With a proper guidance, the awareness and an insight of the things and being a companion, parents perform the very significant role to make their children capable of succeeding in career life.

 

Negative Role By The Parents

Yes, there may a negative side too and we cannot deny this fact that sometimes parents at some point of time in their children’s educational life may become troublesome or may overshadow their children’s decision making which is a kind of dominance and pressurization. It happens, and it happens with having bad implications on their ward’s career life. Students are sometimes not given enough freedom in choosing the educational streams. The decision-making power of the children would not be given an impetus. Frankly speaking, children have no say regarding their educational life and they end up opting for or yielded to the forced decisions and alternatives. This is actually not healthy a parenthood. It affects at large and even has the potential to shatter the very development of children in terms of educational life and career path.

We are of the opinion that children must be given an ample space to grow and prosper according to their orientation and interest. Only doing this will be the children grow and prosper well in their educational and career life otherwise the frustration due to the forced decisions and pursuance will darken the children’s life in general.
