Parents have a common disease of forcing some attribute on their children. Sometimes, the mother who wanted to become a singer tries to fulfill her wish through her child. Similarly someone else tries to make his child a player as he wanted to be so in his childhood. Fulfilling your dreams through you children is not something very logical. It’s your child’s life. Let him/her decide what he/she wants to be in life and your kid has the full right to do so. You should encourage your child and help him achieve his goals in life. However, first you have to understand the abilities of your child and his natural knacks in different fields. Then only you can help him go ahead in the path. Follow the tips below to judge your kid’s skills and stand by him in his way.
When your kid is not in a position to choose his path on his own, you should judge his skills. Initially, let him do all the things he likes. See what are things, he likes to do more. If you see that you child is more attracted to painting or music or dancing, allow him/her to do that and provide facilities so that your child can get proper training to groom himself. Sometimes go out and play with him to judge his skills and his likings towards cricket or football or any other games.
Talk to your child about his interests. Ask him whether he likes to study math more or physics or any subject from literature. You should take care of your child’s interests. Never discourage your kid to do anything just because you don’t like it. Different people have different choices and there lies the individuality. Always respect your child’s decisions and encourage him so that he can become great in whatever he selects as his path.
