Choosing A Career For A Child Is It The Right Thing To Do?
First, a career is something that has to do with ones life. It is ones calling,occupation or profession.
Now you see situations whereby a child choose to be a music career and the parents wants him / her to be a politician. The parents won't give him the chance of fulfilling what he has passion for because of their sole aim.
That child might end up reading the career because of his parents and dumping the certificate after four years. Most times when they are doing a career because of their parents they don't put energy in it, they don't put in that effort because its not what they are willing to do. You realize that even after doing their parents wish they abandon the certificate and try to pursue what they have passion for.
My advice to parents(mostly Nigeria parents) is never to force a career on a child because of that big name the career comes with. Instead you help your child by fulfilling his/her dream by giving him/her guidelines to follow, support both financially and physically and encouragements too.
In conclusion,there's nothing as sweet as one achieving/fulfilling the career he/she wants to attain. I believe that when one have passion for something he strives hard to make sure that thing is being actualized.
