I think The greatest drawback for children opting for off beat fields is their lack of a sound education. Barring a few exceptions,our education system is built on passing examinations by hook or by crook. Very little is offered to expand the child’s vision and to think laterally.Invariably,they choose safe careers. Most parents today are ignorant of the avenues available to their children.The child of today is better informed than his parents because of technology,and this is ,perhaps the first time in human history that this has happened.Schools and colleges can give better advice on careers than parents.There is a profusion of careers available in umpteen number of sectors and children should be allowed to explore and decide for themselves. What do you think??
