Well,I would say it’s not right while some persons may say it’s right.
In my own perspective,I think it’s better for kids to choose the subjects they think they can do very well .Not the one that they will be struggling to pass.Just to please mom and dad or so called aunties and uncles.
Why I was saying this,is because I have seen a lot of homes fighting because of this subjects issue.where a kid will be saying no,this is what I want.The parents on the other hand will be saying I disagree with you,this is what I want for you.Most times they even start threatening each other.kid will be saying I’m no longer interested in that school thing and the parents in the other hand will be saying;if you don’t do the ones i choose for you I will no longer pay your fees.
What most parents don’t know is that if eventually that kid succumb, he or she may not do well in those subjects chosen for him or her.And you won’t blame them for that. Cos it was forced on them.
Another one is inculcating fear in our kids over those subjects they choose to do:You will hear some parents or guardian telling there kids that the subjects they choose to do is very hard and,that they cannot excell in those subjects. Which we all know it’s a lie.How do you know that,that kid will not put all his or her efforts in doing those subjects since it’s what he or she likes to do.
I remembered when I was about to enter senior secondary.One of my aunties asked me the subjects I would want to do.I told her but when I mentioned Geography, she screamed. Telling me that I can’t do it,that it’s a hard subject. Do you know that, at that very moment I disliked geography and never did it because of fear.The deadly fear my aunt imposed on me made me not to choose geography and I’m still regretting it.
Well,I’m suggesting that we should allow our kids to choose whatever the subjects they want to do.This will help them in choosing their career course.As for me,I have decided not to interfere in my own kids choosing their subjects.But will be there in guiding and answering their questions whenever they ask.
Still want to hear your opinion on this.love you all!
