Most of us have heard about inheriting talent from parents
or ancestors. But what about inheriting education from parents. As parents,
most of us tend to insist our children to pursue the exact path we came through
in different areas of our lives only because we have achieved certain success.
Even in the area of education, parents dominate to decide in which institution
their children have to take admission for their college education, what subject
they should choose to study etc. What our children become is not by their
rational choice, but inherited by conditioning and habits, sometimes passed
through generations. This is an outdated belief that does nothing good for
today’s new generation kids.
Often most parents forget the fact that they were born and
brought up in an era without even a computer or television while their children
are living in the world of internet and smartphones. Before going to pre-school
they handle it smarter than their parents do.
When children are forced to follow the limiting rules or
beliefs of their parents, they are held back from their true potential and true
identity or true self.
In today’s society of changing opportunity scenarios and
corporate requirements, we should not limit our children’s imagination and
aspirations with our limited experience.
We must encourage our children to question anything that is
in their life, for it will bring up a new way to perceive life. This will help
them think things that we never thought about.
It is time when we should #ThinkBig and guide our children
to dream high and achieve their goals.
