As a parent it is extremely critical to nourish and cater the needs and aspirations of your children SELFLESSLY. Let them follow their heart because heart is where all the treasures are. Let them paint the canvas of their life with bright shades of innocence, happiness, and excellence. All that a child needs is someone whom he can trust, who will motivate him to pursue his higher self, his true self. He will make mistakes out of his immaturity and inexperience, but this is the stepping stone of his evolution and learning.
Parents should be like a support system, a motivator, a supporter, a helper in their painting.The painting will be bright, beautiful, along with stains of failure,wrong judgements and immaturity.But it will be ORIGINAL.Imperfections are what that that will make the canvas a perfect one. To err is human.
As experienced grown ups, parents might see the risk of pursuing what a child wants to become. Some may have their own unfulfilled dreams that they want to accomplish through their children. Mind you, burdening the tender shoulders of young buds with own dreams and expectations is even worse than a Child Labour.
Every child is special and a miraculous creation of divine. Let's not kill the creativity and individuality of a child. Let the child in him be alive.And Einstein adviced not to commit the sin of judging a fish by its ability to climb a tree.A child's mind is highly intuitive and parents' mind rational. Never allow rationality to kill intuitive mind.It is futile to raise a child who knows the price of everything and value of nothing.
To conclude, I shall only say as a parent we should improvise the paintings of our children but never change the theme of his canvas. Set him free to paint his world with his own uniqueness and god's grace. They already have wings, let them fly. Give them some space and see where they going...
