Every Parents want their children to b a doctor or an engineer.......... It seems that they are not aware of immense no: of careers which r available than these two...... They also r least carin about their childs interest..................... For this children get very much depressed if they r pushed into a career which they don like.... Wat u all say for this............??????

In the UK now there are alot of cases of children suffering with depression and it is disgusting. Since education has become a fight to get your child into the best schools, many parents are putting so much pressure on their kids to achieve so much at such a young age. We are one of the top countries who test our children the most. From the age of seven, these children are in competition with each other. Although its the parents not the children. Alot of parents need to wake up and realise what they are doing to their children. Shame on them!!! This generation will certainly not think that school was the best days of their lives.

Make them remember when they were children and how they felt. I have children and I will never push my aspirations onto them. I love them for who they are and I hope they will do well in life, but having the best job does not always make you the happiest person.
