Every parents want their children’s to become successful and guide them throughout childhood & adulthood.
Parent’s high expectation for their children’s which can serve to increase children’s own expectations to achieve a common goal.
In general, 95% of the parents have desire for their children’s to become a hero (actor), sportsman, doctor, lawyer, engineers and pilots. Since childhood we keep on hearing the same thing over and over again- what you want to become in future and 95% of the answer is hero (actor) doctor, lawyer, engineer and pilot just because as these are the highest paid job all around the world.
I am from banking background family and all my life i have seen my parents working and doing the same thing over and over again. when i was kid i always wanted to become a banker but when you get to know people from different world and develop behavior with your pals accordingly. We tend to feel like we are different than what we used to be. We acquire different skills, education, interest & expectations that can be different from others and your parents. Considering that the educational expectations of both parents and yourself. we strongly believe that our expectations and experience are totally different than our academic achievements. it is important to investigate the factors that shape these expectations. Specifically, parents with higher levels of education have higher expectations for their children’s educational attainment and are more involved in their children’s education than parents with lower levels of education.
What i am trying to say here is most of the parents push their children’s to become someone they think of but never realize what their kids interested for and what potentials they really have. Children also develop their own expectations for their educational achievement and success. These expectations are strongly related to their own well being as physically we might look similar but all of us have mental differences.
As we can see many people choose the career their parents want them to become but how many of them continue their profession in the long run. How many of their kids will make it to the top. Kids tend to drop schools and university just because they don’t enjoy doing it. We have seen people change their career as they no longer enjoy doing it. Some people still continue because they afraid to take chances and there are few people who love challenges and crave to become successful.
The educational expectations of children are also expected to vary based on family and social status. Majority of parents tend to provide their kids with better education, better lifestyles, better culture and better environment.
Our children are part of our lives and we forget that we have to give them better guidance to become successful in life. It is very important for parents to identify the potential of their children and guide & motivate them accordingly. Just like every yellow glitters are not gold everyone can’t become lawyers, doctor, engineer and pilots. There are hundreds or thousands of different professions in the world & they are successful too.
