Parents play a significant role in their children development. They are the first role model for their children and can be a friend, a philosopher and a guide throughout their whole life. Even when there is the time for career selection children always seek support and assistance of their parents in a significant manner. Parental guidance is equally important for them to make a perfect career decision.

In the present scenario, choosing a career is becoming more complex. Along with the advanced technologies, many confusions of career selection is getting more rather than the excitement to start a career. It is seen that younger students attract towards rising career choices whereas the parents insist them to stick to the traditional career routes and play safe. At that time, the need of career counseling is must to bridge the gap between parents and children.


Analyze the right track:

The first point is to ensure parents about the upcoming new careers and their rising future scope. They need to get aware of good prospects. There are many career options which might have proved unsatisfactory in the past, but it is possible that they become lucrative and financially rewarding in the upcoming years. Parents can speak friendly about all the aspects of the different career field and provide children complete information about it. They can easily analyze all the benefits and challenges in a particular field.

Try to understand children's ambitions:

Usually, parents start daydreaming about their children’s career since their childhood and insist them for following the same. It is possible that students may have some other ambitions of their own about which they are dreaming for long. It is possible that your children don’t want to follow your steps. In fact, they are looking for something more prestigious beyond your experiences. Career counselors help them to explore wide and flexible job scope as per their children's interests.

Identify your child’s interests:

Parents need to be aware of their children's strengths and weaknesses. They need to be confirmed about the requirements that match perfectly to their prospective career. Career counselors will help parents to identify their children's hidden talents so that they can truly introspect themselves as per their children’s interests. This will also help children to get guidance from the parents according to their potential and goals.


Choose according to skills:

Students sometimes may get fascinated by their childhood games to the practical world. If a student loves to play with cars, it doesn’t mean he can go for automobile engineering. He must know about the hard work and skills required for it. He has to crack various entrance exams for getting admissions in automobile industries. Parents and children together may go for career counseling sessions to explore wide career choices. They will also guide you for the lucrative fields like engineering, medical, CA, CS etc. They need to know about the competitive exams to qualify for such fields.

Helps in coming together:

Once both parents and children aware of all the facts discussed by the career counselors, they are well prepared to discuss their career choices with each other. They can also go for aptitude tests to know about their own potential for what they are good at. After having a discussion with career counselors parents can get to know about different career options. This knowledge can help them to understand their skills and motivate them according to their careers. In fact, try to motivate your children and bring self-confidence in them by guiding them for their career choices.

Career counselors may also help them in exploring the combination of two different streams and making the best career fit out of them. Such as, if children want to go with engineering subjects, then they can take graphics designing along with it. Writing, documentation, and publishing can be combined with the medicines. Law with a management degree, commerce with mass communication, and some other combinations may also prove profitable. In this era of cut-throat competition, dual qualification will give you endless choices for future job prospects. Career counselor thus helps you to evaluate all the queries in a non-biased manner and will come out with the perfect solution which is suitable for both parents and children.
