A big No children have the right to be who ever they want to be ...it's just like Muhammad Ali's father wants him to be a musician and Michael Jackson father wants him to be a boxer...a father has no right to choose a career for his child but only to guide him

A child should be given the opportunity to choose his/her career because it is afterall the child's future and not the parents

It is okay to point the child in the direction but it is even better to push and support them in what ever career they choose

This is the mistake most parents  make. But thank goodness the rate of career choice imposing from parents on their kids has reduced to its barest minimum. One thing in life is fulfilment, if parents choose a career choice for their kids. High probability is they turn out unhappy and very much unfulfilled.

Which is wrong and as a result of their parents mistake. I think this idea is totally wrong and absurd

Every parent  WAnt the best from his child.. .But the truth is I think they should  allow the child to pursue  his goal by himself. Instead  of making choices  for them because  they will end up not valuing  that in future

The stage of making a career choice can be a challenging moment as one has to battle both with his/her mind as well as with parents. 

Parents often times coarse their children/wards into choosing certain career paths, all in the name of ''having the best interest's of their children/wards at heart, and also their experience in life in general.

However, even as choosing for one may proof good in the long run, this may not work out well for another child. If the latter be the case, chaos often sets in the family as the affected individual now throws every blame of failure on whomever chose that part for him/her especially if he/she had objected the idea at first.

It's, therefore, imperative that parents allow their children/wards choose their career parts.

I strongly disagree with this opinion... I cojntnit as the worst thing to ever think of by a parent...choosing of career choice for one children is a bad idea which will surely affect such children. Career is not something to be chosen for someone. Assuming such kid as been destined to be a law and his/her parents choose medical doctor for such person. The kid won't be able to perform as expected by the parent and it will serve as waste of time .

"Every parent  WAnt the best from his child.. .But the truth is I think they should  allow the child to pursue  his goal" The child has his own goal when the parent chooses for the child it's like giving the child another goal to pursue which the child might not really perform well or be happy with in the future

No you don't choose a career choice for your children because you don't know what God has destined him/she to be in life. A child may be destined to be a doctor but because you have so many cases with people that you wish to win, and you want your child to study Law for you to have victory over them. That child might be the lawyer tomorrow but can't defend you, because he/she is  quack.

In my opinion,

It's the parent duty to guide their children on career choice while the kids are left to choose their career by the guidance provided by their parents.

This is essential cos anything not borne out of conviction will not last as there will be struggle in the pursuit of such. This shal suggests that compulsion will have more negative impacts than good.

It is not wise for parents to choose a carrier for their children, they might end up being a looser. Allow your children make their choices of carrier, what should be your duty as a guidance or parents is to counsel them about their aim towards fulfilling their dream and be praying for them. Stop forcing your child to study a professional course simply because your friends child is offering that in school, destiny differs so be careful on how you deal with your child's destiny.

No at all! It's wrong. As parents you should choose a career for your kids. You can guide them based on their talents and passion but the final decision should not be yours. So many children are lost in the careers their parents chose for them.

Parents are to make decisions for their children when they are still young but such decisions like career path should be taken based on the qualities, potentials, talents, gifts discovered in that child. But when the child come of age, he or she has the right to choose what career path to follow. May God help all parents not to make the wrong decisions for their wards.

 For me, it really depends on how the relationship between the parent and the child is, there are some children that dont even know what they want to be like they are undecided... For this set of children, the parent deciding for the child is okay...

But for those that know what they want, no parents should ever force any career on them because if they do, eventually the child will just be unhappy, the child might even go through with the parents plan only to please them...

As the case of FALZ

No its not good to choose a career path for your children. In most cases, most children are unable to cope with their forced choice of course to study.A child that has a great potential to be an engineer and is forced to study law totally contradicts.And therefore it might become too late for such a parents to undo what has been done

I don't think it is good or advisable to choose a career for your children,  in  fact i  strongly disagree because it would surely affect the child in one way or the other especially when the child does not find the career his/her parent has choosen for him/her suitable for himself /herself.  The parent can only monitor ,guide and lead the child to the write path.

Yes it is wrong to choose  carrier for your çhildren.e.g the child might be a footballer when he's  small but because people normally get injured sometimes,as a mother you don't  want any situation whereby allowing your son to get hurt you now change his/her carrier by telling him to study hard so that he will be a lawyer,it will not work because it is not his or her calling.

So parents should not choose carrier for their children.

Well, I believe a child has to be given a chance to figure out what works for him/her. That is, where their talents or passion lies. Choosing a career path for a child always results in regrets from both parties which makes them hate their parent at the end of the day.

Parents can choose career for their children when they are still very tender by channelling their attention towards the said career.

But when the child come of age and don't like the career and wants to back off,parents should support them to achieve their dreams.

A capital NO. I mean NO, I repeat NO.

I see no reason why parents would choose a career choice for the children.

I think all they can do is to advise their children with good reason on  career choice making. parents are not meant to choose what we can a life thing so to say, 

Because career to an individual is a do or don't life choice.  If the child chooses to be an engineer the parents can only advice and ask for reasons why the child as chosen that as a career choice.

They know and can only do the best for themselves still it is a deal with one's future (child)

But it will be very bad for parents to choose career choice for their children

Fine,you gave birth to us and you probably know more than us,but it is our decision and choice to choose whoever we want to be,yours is to give us advice that will guide us through out. Because if they do, it ruin so many things at the end of the day.

Although parents are the ones who know their wards the best than any other person, yet they should not influence them to choose a career for their future, due to following reasons:

1. Career is important that impacts ones entire future: Only once in a lifetime a person gets an opportunity to decide the career, and if he or she fails to move on the right track the whole future dwindles down. Many times , the children accept the career of their parent’s choice and in a short term they leave the course as the stream fails to impress the child. So, let the children make their own career choice and not by parents or family influence.

It's really a bad thing for parents deciding what they want their children to be in future. They should allow the children to go for what they have the passion for, one can only force a horse to the river, but can't force it to drink water from the river.. A child can only be great at what he has the passion for, and not what his/her parents forces him/her to do

Parents still making a career choice for their children in this 21st century is quite funny if you ask me, nowadays that social media has become common among even the young makes it easy to become more enlightened and probably develop passion in things our parents may not even have a knowledge, forcing such persons to study anything aside that their interest is nothing less than a disaster.

All parents wants what's best for their child but choosing a career for the child is not very good. The child from his potential has the right to choose his or her career and the parents will then have a sit down with the child to know why he or she made the choice. Thereby not choosing for the child but helping them make the right choice.

It is in no way the duty of the parents to choose a career for their child.  The child should be given the opportunity to choose a career of his/her choice, because choosing a career for the child will not only not be good for the child but will also end up making the child not to be happy about the profession he/she is handling no matter the amount d child is earning.

Choosing career for one's child is part of the problem we are having in the society. Parents are supposed to guide the children in discovering their passion and go in pursuit of it. One of reasons we have lawyers working in the banks or engineers working in a law firm is as a result of parents dictating the career choice of their children.
