Children have their own thought of what they want to do when they are older picking a career that they can learn from maybe they picked the right or the wrong career but they have an advantage too. That's learning. If they picked the wrong career they would want to change learn something better maybe face some hardships but then they would succeed. In such situations, parents get insecure for the career the child wants to pursue and then there is a lot of burden on the child.A parent should not make the child"s future but maybe guide and support them instead of making the decisions. The parents should show them a website of the college that the child wants to go to. Tell them about their experience in college and give them tips. Show them how the system works and to get used to it. Not to make the decision because if they do the child would not learn how to be responsible and take over his life because from age"s 1-16 the parent guides the child and now the child would be in charge of his life and use whatever he/she has learned from the parents in their lives. If the parent would make the child"s future then the child would grow older and then have children of their own. They would still follow whatever they learned from their parents and therefore imply it on their children so then making their child"s future would continue for generations and generations. I agree that maybe the parents should be a part but not just rule over their child's future and say if the child wants to be a doctor and the parents force the child to be an engineer. First that won't help the child because he has a mind set on being a doctor. Second the child would be stressed because the parents are pushing the child too much. It is okay for a parent to give suggestions but the career and the future is totally dependant on the child so he/she learns how to be independent and responsible. Another point is that the child needs to learn how to be independent by the parents setting the future for the child and the colleges the child wouldn't have a say in this decision and then the child would just do what the parents say. The child would still have dreams and want to fulfill them because they wanted to be someone better in their career. The decision that the parents make for the children might be too harsh and it would be hard for the children to cope up with the particular career the parents have planned or chosen for them, which will then lead to frustration and stress. Also at a particular age, a child comes to know where he/she stands they know what they can do and what they can"t.Parents should let the child have freedom over his/her career. In conclusion, parents making decisions for their children is a useful method of the way the parents want it. However parents should help their children instead of just pushing them to choose the career that the parents want the child to choose.

Parents should be able to direct their children toward their future. This is because the parents have given birth to the child and have to raise them up. Without the parents the child wouldn't even be alive. It is essential for parents to have a say in their child's future or the child could become disobedient and forget their parents. They'll start to think that their parents don't even have any "power" over them. The child will become spoiled and disrespectful. Also, the parents have also gone through the same scenario's, if not very similar scenarios during their lives. They'll be able to guide their children this way. moreover parents are not rubbish to be thrown away somewhere.They gave up so much for you and now you just want to throw them away? I'm sure you wouldn't want that when you grow old! I'm sure you would want your children to care for you and not just throw you away in a home, like you were some garbage thrown an a bin. They never did that to you no matter how hard it was for them.

Just because parents make children doesn't mean they are allowed to control them. Or am I allowed to kill my baby?
Of course not! Children are human and are free to do what they want.
