Dilemma in Career Choices 

IT is winter in Kashmir, and for a student, it is a time to wake up early and rush towards coaching centers. Kashmir is one among the beautiful places on earth, but, taking its youth into cognizance, they have made this wonderful heaven a wandering one.

In Kashmir, after passing class 10th examinations, students get a welcome in different coaching centers to opt their streams. But, this time they have to be careful because whatever they will be in future is purely reflected by the subjects they opt. Students must understand and know why they’re opting a particular stream. Consistency, sticking to goals, inquisitiveness, time management and dedication is the key to success. And proper strategy, clear perspective and motivation are three basic factors they need to work upon. I see a number of students wandering in coaching centers. They go to almost every coaching center but they are still in a dilemma and confusion.

I have seen a number of students getting admission in coaching centers without consulting their parents or elders. Parents have to give freedom and independence to their children but to some limits. Parents are known as the best councillors of a child, but if they become abortive to give right opinions and decisions to their children, then they are responsible for their arrogance. Home is the best school for children and they should get proper nourishment here or else they will become unsuccessful in his goals.

Parents sometimes force their children to choose medical stream: a practice typical in our society. Children have the right to choose their subject of interest. Parents must encourage them and appreciate their choice and support them fully, this will lead them to achieve their goals easily because if a person has not any sort of interest in studies he can never achieve his goal in life. When parents send their children to outside places far from home to study, they should keep in consideration that their children should not become victims of bad evils of our society like drug abuse etc. that can set a blot on a student’s character.

The hand of a parent is the best support that a child can hold.  So, parents should look after the likes, dislikes and choices of a child and make proper decisions for them. So that they can turn the wandering heaven into a wonderful one!
