Nurturing Intelligence and Ambition

Nurturing Intelligence and Ambition

Every child has the necessary intelligence to live his life fully. As a parent, you should just create an atmosphere for him to grow into his intelligence; just encourage him to be intelligent and aware. The problem comes when a parent wants their child to be intelligent their way, not the child’s way. A parent’s idea of intelligence may be that the child should become a doctor. Maybe he would have made a wonderful carpenter but you want him to become a doctor not because you want your child to dedicate himself as a doctor, but simply because you have an idea in your head that in the social structure, a doctor or an engineer means some kind of prestige. Don’t try and live your life through your children. This is a sure way to destroy children.

Your child need not do what you did in life. Your child should do something that you did not even dare to think of in your life. Only then will this world progress.
