A child can grow anywhere but most important is his happiness and peace of mind which for me can only be achieved if he learns and works for himself and is satisfied. A very common problem among most of the parents is they present their wishes in front of their child and want them to fulfill it no matter what. No doubt they do all sorts of things and sacrifice themselves and many more on their child but all this goes to waste when they don’t let their child free and do their own will for their satisfaction.
I believe that a successful person with no peace of mind and satisfaction is neither successful nor happy. A child from birth is taught to follow certain rules and steps which he not always follows the same way as taught. Every time a child does what makes him happy not what makes others happy but, once he reaches a stage of life where he has to choose a way for his whole life to be at least the way good all he needs is a supportive environment and some advisors but at that precious time, he is presented with the wishes of his family that not always are the way same he wants.
A child does not know what to do and where to go until he reaches a certain stage where he can think and understand what to do and what not to do and that is the reason why their aims and dreams for life keeps on changing with the trend and the environment surrounded in. But, once a person reaches at a stage where he knows what goals and things is suitable according to his ability most of the times gets disappointed after his family presents them with what they have to go for in future and this leads to a depressed and difficult way for him as a result of which he finds himself losing the race again and again even if he tries all the ways to succeed.

Interest matters at every point of life without which one can’t do the things properly. Ages are spent in fulfilling the wishes of the beloved just because one does not want to disappoint them or is afraid of the society and the other things and end up finding no peace or sometimes drained in failure. “Let me free and do what is suitable according to my ability” is the line roaming around and around that person who is pressured to do what he never thought of and this may be the reason why the youth is suffering from depression, cardiac arrest and many more such things. Sometimes, this leads to a person find a better solution to suicide.

A spoonful of supportive family with a garnishing of acceptance to pursue his own dreams will make his future amazing, peaceful and successful while involving yourself and your wishes in between and forcing your child to do what you want rather than to do what he wants makes it difficult for him to survive. He will try any possible way out to cut off all the relations and connections with his family and try to find shelter under the arms of those in his favor which will end him to take wrong paths. This will turn a growing flower into a thorny one harsh and sometimes rude and can even destroy his mental peace.

No passion is superior or inferior when it comes to one’s satisfaction and interest. Mostly you will find them doing what their family wants them to do work as their family wants them to work also, they will try to fit themselves accordingly but once they face a single failure in their way they will completely lose hope and will continue being afraid of moving on and trying some different ways to succeed.

Guilt of not raising their voice in favour of themselves and against the wishes and wants of family will continue to be with them and this will slowly and slowly destroy them from inside and they will try it hard either to pursue their own dreams illegally without the knowledge of their family or to escape from everyone.

Lucky are those who get acceptance, whose dreams are similar to the wishes of their family, or who raise voice for themselves but not everyone is bestowed with this. Let your child do what makes him happy and does not leave any guilt when he falls. Let them stand up themselves again and again when they fall.

All your responsibility is to guide them what is right and wrong, others are their choice. Fields are vast enough and they can fit anywhere according to their ability. No matter they are what they are doing for you they are not happy unless it does not involve their will. It is their time to live to grow and to face the challenges and accept this but they will never learn unless you will act as a supportive person rather than hindrance in their goals.
This precious and sensitive stage of their life can either take a proper and smooth way with happiness and interest or continue to go the way wrong. Either be supportive or let them in guilt, sadness and disappointed choice is yours.
