On 14th May 2016, I gave birth to a lovely child whom we named Shriti. Taking her in my arms for the first time, I was awestruck by her innocence. I believe this is experienced by every mother. As parents, we are always concerned about our children’s future.
Children’s real journey starts right from the moment they step outside their houses. When they start school, they not only get introduced to a new set of people but also to a different environment. Within a few months or years of school days, parents may get an idea of their children’s interest and capabilities. This, I believe, is the most important role of a parent, which establishes the child’s growth trajectory.
If I encourage my daughter to do what she enjoys, I am confident that she will excel in that area. It will not be a compulsion or duty for her if she is genuinely interested in it. Let your children excel in what they choose and not what you choose for them!
