THis is a real worrying question and intends to have many discrete answers. Tell me as a parent what do you expect your child?? And also that why do you want them to do so??

I do not believe you have the right to decide for your child what he or she should do. It is more important for your child to learn to make the right decisions, and to enjoy what ever he or she decides to do. I see that you are from India, and we Indians do tend to get worked up when our children do not end up as doctors or engineers. Obviously, not everyone can be a doctor or an engineer. Still, I can understand your worries, being Indian myself!

I expect that my children will be bright and clver and be able to look after themselves. The reason for this is that I really want them to be able to be like that and I am pushing them hard in that direction.

I want my son to become a good preson in this world.A good man can only get permanent success in life.If he is a not a good person then what he becomes in life and how much money he makes in life doesnot matters.As my son is interested in biology I want him to become a doctor.But finally its his decision.But I want him to be remembered as a good person by everyone.As a good mother I expect him to become a good son.This is my expectation from him.

I'm not a parent, so I dont really have an idea what its like to have children and so, what to expect from them. However, there's one thing I really want them to possess:intelligence, that is, the habit of thinking. "Thinking" is what always guides you. Its what's always guided me. It tells you when you're wrong and it teached you to listen to others and learn from your own mistakes. It's a great help and keeps you from becoming arrogant, so you never lose the right track. One who doesnt think is easily deceived and misguided, so the power or habit of thinking, which in some sense may be called "intelligence", is I think, essential.
