If our educationalists and mentors would have aimed at the cultivation of our mind and body and nurturing our innate qualities, there would have been much better results. Unfortunately academic knowledge are hardly aligned to corporate jobs. Hardly a handful of people would be there who follow their passion and attain ultimate success. But we cannot deny the fact that examinations are the gateway for success in our life.
Children these days not only undergoes through their own tension but also pressure from their parents. Parents on contrary have already gone through their own failures in life and create panicky catastrophising future of their children.
Parents often forget the fact that in the run of life, report cards lose their relevance. 'How many soldiers took part in the Battle of Panipat?' Or the synonyms of 'Ghar' or 'Kripan' hardly is of use in life.
If as parents, we do not support our children and give them the moral support at this crucial time, it will definitely leave a longtime scar in their memory lane.
As parents, it is very difficult to maintain the balance between strictness and rudeness. Rather than being judgmental on their results, we should try to appreciate the hard work, the effort that our children gave while preparing. Rather than leaving them disheartened with a bad result, we should boost their moral and support/assist them in taking major decisions of their lives.
In a nutshell, it's important to make our children responsible for whatever they decide in their life and be their strong pillars in life at the time of crisis.
