In today’s Times of Oman newspaper, I read a news that says as board exams are nearing it is parents who are more stressful than children. The news says seven out of ten calls coming to hotline for counselling is from parents. Many parents expectations is that their children should fetch hundred marks in all the subjects.We can feel what is wrong in this , as a parents they expect their children should get more marks so that they can get good career and their future will be bright. But the report says, stressful parents transfer it to their children’s too.
I read an information about Edison , after joining school in few months his teacher said he’s not a normal child . As his mother is a teacher she trained him from home . His parents encouraged him to read more books. Edison’s parents didn’t compelled him for marks, degree or career. They gave him encouragement. Edison did hard work in the way he liked he has became one among the important persons born in this world.
From the above incidents I feel I have to learn myself what kind of mother I am going to be, whether I am going to dump my expectations to my children or I am going to let my children to live their dreams.
