We are living in the 21st century where the life has become so fast that even the family members don’t get time to sit together, live together and enjoy together. Fathers working in the corporate sectors are able to spend quality time with their children only on weekends, while working mothers are only able to serve breakfast in the morning and supper at night, to their children. Since they are born, children spend most of their time with nannies, then at baby creche and further at school. In their free time, they mostly watch TV and learn from it. Their culture and traditions are actually derived from what they are getting to watch & learn. When children enter their teen, they become a fan of some popular young pop star, and either they start getting attracted to their hardcore negative hip-hop lyrics or their sad heartbroken songs.
Gone are the days where children in a joint family used to sit together with their grandpa or grandma, listening stories and experiences about life. These children were not so much pressurised from the beginning, so they did not have any pressure about their future or career, but they used to get a respectable job in which they knew how to stay happy. They had no competition with their neighbours or relatives, rather they were living happily with even limited resources that they had. They had a peace of mind, an innocent heart and a sharp brain free from all sorts of worries & tensions. These children are well settled now and they have also proven themselves as the successful & responsible citizen of the nation.
But after becoming parents, why they have forgotten their childhood days? Why are they in a race to become better than others? Why they force their child to become ‘the best’ in the field in which he is not even interested? And they do this from the beginning of his childhood when they know that even if he achieves success, he would still remain unhappy from inside and would lose his inner peace. Why don’t they let their children follow their dreams? Why they do not understand the value of being satisfied, rather than being successful? I have also seen parents who force their dreams on their children, they let their frustration flow into the minds of their children, which is a psychological crime. And this is the only reason why the children of such parents are never happy even if they become successful, as they consider themselves a loser because they could not achieve what they wanted to. I would like to question such parents that do they still want to see their child as an unsuccessful person in his own eyes? Do they want to kill the seeds of hope which will grow into a big tree of inner peace in their children’s life? Do they want their child to consider himself as a big loser, who is not happy at all even when he is doing great according to his parents?
If ‘NO’, then I request all the parents out there to let their children chase their own dreams and let them grow their own way. Let them follow their interests and fulfil their wishes. You have no right to snatch the pure, heavenly smile from the lips of these innocent children and of course you do not want to be responsible for the unsuccessful career of your child with no peace & happiness left in his life.
For the beautiful children, I am leaving few extremely meaningful, valuable and motivational thoughts in the end, that you need to remember until you achieve your dreams. If you already gave up, then read them, get up, fight the circumstances and start pursuing your dreams until you achieve them…
“As soon as you begin to pursue a dream, your life wakes up and everything has a meaning”.
“The biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living at doing what they most enjoy”.
“Once upon a time you were a little child with big dreams that you promised you would make real one day. Don’t disappoint yourself”.
“Don’t downgrade your dream just to fit your reality, rather upgrade your conviction to match the destiny”.
