“The highest education is that which does not merely give us information, but makes our life in harmony with all existence”-Rabindranath Tagore
Education is that weapon with which we can fight against all odds. It is a settled fact that only proper education can help us to stand tall in the battle of life. Once you are a parent, I believe, there is perhaps no other emotion plays in the mind stronger than the betterment of our children. It is the dream of every parent to gift a secure life to their children, to expedite the best possible upbringing and, to help them fulfill their dreams.
Let me share a story of my family. My father, after finishing his engineering, got the chance to work in a reputed foreign farm. But he being the youngest and most adorable son in the family, my grandmother vehemently opposed the idea of his going overseas. As a result, he started his career here in the country missing the opportunity of a lifetime. Can you imagine a similar behaviour from a mother of our generation? Unthinkable, isn’t it? The nub of the matter is, gone are those days when emotions used to play an upper hand even in such life-turning decisions. We now have learnt to look at the brighter side of things with rationale and have broadened our views.
We, parents, now take into account the realities of the time we are living in. But, the question is, are we all equipped enough to provide our children with the best we can afford? Do we have provisions to guide them towards fulfilling their aspirations?
Now, you may ask, why do we need to think so hard about it?
Well, as I said earlier, the time has changed. We have numerous career options now and, our children choose their career often on their own. they have strong likings and dislikings. They have their own dreams and, it is our duty to encourage them, to help them transforming the dreams into reality.
The expense of education has raised exponentially in the past few years. With private educational institutions coming up in the forefront, children now have different routes to reach their dream destinations. And, you, as a parent, need to help them tread through the way. Are you ready for that or you need to #DoYourHomework?
Many of us are not aware how we should prepare for the future courses of our kids in terms of career or higher education. This site can help you to understand the situation in a better way. They also have career calculators, story books and puzzles which can help the children explore different careers and choose independently.
Whatever might be the outcome of their choice, we should be prepared with our plans for the child’s future. It’s up to you fulfill your child’s aspirations, this is the best gift parents can give to their children.
