Tell your child that it's ok to be different or to go ahead with something out of the box.
A goal is set only when you dream of achieving something but, what if people start walking on a path which they never wanted to right from an early age? We won’t be able to work on a particular thing if our heart lies elsewhere. For example, a person who wants to become an actor will never like doing a 5 to 9 job and someone who wants to pursue arts as a career will not gain any interest in studying science.
Parents must sit with their children and talk about what they desire to become in the future. Parental support is important for children to thrive or else they might find it difficult to cross the hurdles that life has set ahead of them.
You may feel that the particular field that your child wants to choose may not benefit him/her in any way. But if they are allowed to live their dreams, they might turn into successful individuals someday which will certainly make your heart swell with pride.
Tell your child that it's ok to be different or to go ahead with something out of the box. Make them understand that failure is a part and parcel of life and without experiencing it no one can ever flourish. Their ideas matter as they have the ability to bring in several positive changes and giving a boost to their dreams can help them in every way.
