How would my parents kill my career dreams, yet they claim they love me? That’s unbelievable.


Parenting is one of the complex tasks. This is because parents aren’t dealing with objects or robots, they are dealing with humans.  Humans, as we know it, are very complex creatures.
Parents sometimes while trying their best to be perfect indirectly kill their child’s dreams.
This is so unfortunate because most times it is ignorantly done. Well, that’s the thing about ignorance. You can never tell what going to happen next. It is just like walking in the dark. You just might hit your head so badly.
This is the case with so many parents. They are walking in the dark in relation to taking care of their children.
It is so sad that while they are trying their best to raise a better child they kill their child’s career dreams.
Well, this post aims to enlighten all the parents out there. I would be presenting some of the ways parents ignorantly kill their child’s career dreams.
Let’s proceed!

Do your Child has a Dream?

Yes, he or she does. You need to take the time to ask them. Most times, they may not be able to explain their dreams so well to you. Some of them are so shy that they cannot even voice out their minds. I have been once there.
Every child has passion, dreams, or ambitions. Most times, it is not just clear yet. It is like looking at smoke but with time the smoke would all clear off.
Parents shouldn’t become an impediment to their child's career dreams. They should rather support them.
Let’s proceed even more.

Ways Parents kill their Child’s Career Dreams

How Parents ignorantly ruin their Children Career Dreams and Future

1.     Not supporting your child academically.
2.     Giving your child excess food to school.
3.     Giving your child very little food to school
4.     Not allowing them to watch television.
5.     Allowing them to watch television in excess.
6.     Not being sensitive to their career dream.
7.     Dictating what they should become.
I will be explaining each of these points

1.     Not supporting your child academically:

This I believe is the first way you can destroy your child’s dream career. Education is a powerful influence on your child’s career dream. Without a good education, your child may be lost.
I have seen people with the diligence to study, but they keep failing. They have the passion but things aren’t just working out in relation to their academics. This isn’t their fault or the cause of one supernatural force or something, this is a foundational problem.
The success of a child is dependent on early education that is being given to him or her.
They are many ways of killing your child’s career dreams by not supporting your child’s academics.
Some of the ways include;
·        Depriving your child of early education. I believe this is the worst.
·        Not supporting your child when doing his homework
·        Not paying attention to the educational needs of your child
·        Being always busy when it comes to your child academics needs.

2.     Giving your child excess food to school:

This is the second way parents ignorantly kill their child. They give their child too much food to school in the hope that their child is healthy.
This is not entirely bad; however, a moderate feeding would be best.
You may not understand the detrimental effect of over-feeding but I will explain.
Students that eat in excess would end up sleeping. They would find it very hard to assimilate what the teacher is teaching.
This can kill their academic performance and subsequently their career dreams.

3.     Giving your child very little food to school:

This also is bad. Hungry children in the class cannot learn or assimilate. They would be spending hours in school wasting time.
This is a dream killer.

4.     Not allowing them to watch television:

I had dreams but no doubt, my dreams were fueled by what I watch on television. The cartoons I watched helped to shape my imagination.
I begin to see the world from a different view point.
Not allowing your child to watch the television would make their minds dull. They need to explore their little but big minds.

5.     Allowing them to watch television in excess:

Excess of everything is bad. Thinking is good. Excessive thinking can kill. Television is good. The excess of it is bad.
While some parents restrict their children from watching the television some actually do not. Worst, they do not even monitor what their child watches on the TV.
If your child watches a whole lot of garbage, his or her mind might as well become garbage.
Your child’s imagination depends on this. Your child’s career dreams depend on your child’s imagination.

6.     Not being sensitive to their career dream:

This is another way parents ignorantly kill their child’s career dreams. Your child needs you. Do not be too busy for them.
You can act as a strong influence in the promotion of your child’s career dreams. But first, you would need to have a glimpse of what they love.
You would have to be sensitive. Your sensitivity to their career dreams matter a lot.
For instance, do your son has a passion for engineering or science, why don’t you buy him science-fiction CDs or DVDs, stories etc.
Your daughter loves reading and writing stories. They are thousands of children-friendly stories in the world. If wouldn’t hurt if you can get her some.
Let your child see you as a positive influence not as an impediment.

7.     Dictating what they should become:

This is the worst of all. To some point, this may not be thought to be a form of ignorance but rather selfishness.
Some parents intentionally dictate for their children what they what then to become. They oppose their child’s career dreams and impose theirs.
They do not care about their child’s career vision or dreams.
This is a good way to kill your child’s career dreams and joy.

Conclusion

Parents should become a positive influence in their child’s life and not a negative influence.
