Should parents allow their children to choose their own careers?

  • Yes of course

    Young people are supposed to have a chance to make their own decisions and to live its consequences even if it means failure because life is not about passing or failing its about learning from our mistakes and try not to repeat them. After all we are humans and all humans make mistakes.

  • Well, duh, yes.

    I think it is important to encourage children to aspire towards whatever they would like to be and have a variety of different options to choose from. That way, they can end up getting a satisfactory job, if not a dream job. To have your kids be pleased with their job, whether it's park ranger, security guard, nurse, attorney, artist, teacher, police officer, or the president of United Nations, as long as they enjoy their job, then they will generally have happier, fuller lives. They won't have to complain about how their job is tiring, inflexible, or unstable. Instead, they will lead great lives, at least in the career arena, and this good mood resulting from a good job will most likely lead and positively affect other areas of their life. A parent's main goal is to make their kids feel happy and live a good life, right? Therefore, let the kid be what s/he wants to be, if that makes him/her pleased, and don't interfere with it.

    On the other hand, if a parent does not allow a child to be what s/he aspires or dreams of being, that can pressure the kid to please the parent, and end up getting a job s/he detests. Many people do not enjoy life as much when they dislike their job, and sometimes this can turn into depression. No matter how prestigious or stable a job can seem to a parent, it may not appeal to the kid, who might later despair over ending up in the wrong job [because of their parents] and not being able to easily get out to pursue their dream career. Stable job does not equal happy job. Prestigious job does not equal happy job. What your child chooses and would like to pursue equals is the solution to a long, enjoyable career.

  • Yes they should.

    Parents should allow their kids to follow their own path and find the career that is right for them. If they try to butt in and change the way the kid does something they will end up with a career they do not actually like and will end up quitting or never getting anywhere with it.

  • Yes, Parents should allow their children to choose their own careers.

    A child knows best what they would like to do with their lives, and what career interests them the most. A parent may think that they should choose their children's career, but that will only lead to the child being unhappy, possibly for their entire lives in a career that they did not choose, and did not want.

  • Yes because some children do not like the career chosen for them by their parent.

    If career should be chosen for children they might not use it well. Children should chose what they want to be in future, but some parent do support their children to choose what they what to be in future. Good career also end a good living and a good life.

  • Yes they should

    If you follow a career path chosen by your parents and which is not of your interest, you will have to face a lot of challenges and pressure. To avoid such situations, choose a career which interests you the most and that will cause the kids to pressure which causes stress marks because of stress

  • Not all the time!!

    Children need to be able to make their own decisions! The parents don't know everything about their child! The parent cant expect to be able to control every aspect of the child's life! What if you make a decision that would affect the child's future, without even asking what the child wanted in life! The parent should put in input, not make the decision.

  • No not all times

    In this era the child makes the dicision at the age of 15 or less and at this age child get carried away with fashion .In the country like india where i live , child follow fashion . For ex there are thousand of students trying luck in film industry but a few succeds in achieving so. So according to me in country like this parents should take decisions for children .

  • Yes! Why not?

    All children have the right to choose a career for themselves. Parents should only enter in to the equation when it comes to supporting and caring for their children in any and every way they can so that the dreams of the children can be made to come true.
    Thank you and stay blessed.

  • What?! NO, Never!!

    Everyone needs to explore the opportunities and challenges they are faced with and decide which way to steer their own lives. People only learn from their mistakes, so if their whole life is planned out for them, how are they going to learn? Parents should only encourage and support the final decisions their child makes.

It is necessary to show parents all modern career prospects when you are only going to start your education. Very often they influence their kids’ choice and try to change their minds however it is not so easy to be objective for them as the career market has changed greatly. I explained to my parents why I apply to http://britishessaywriter.co.uk/ because I have set the priorities and it is much more important for me to get real practice which is connected with my future career.
