As the exams of your kids are just over and you all must be excited and are happy watching your kids getting medals and batches on the result day for best performance in the different segment. Schools try to manage it so nicely and make sure specifically for Pre-Primary and Primary sections, that every child get a medal or shield for any reason to avoid parent complain or question on why their child did not get one. On the other hand, some of you must be disappointed with the schools for not giving the position that your kids deserve.
But do you know, that among all students who were sitting in exams and your kid was one of those, there was an artist who did not need to understand Math. There was an astronaut, who could do badly in Sindhi. There was a sportsman whose physical fitness was more important than the subject Physics.
If your child doesn’t do well in exams, please don’t feel bad about it. Don’t let him feel ashamed. Don’t take away his/her self-esteem and dignity. Make them feel that you stand by them and you have all your belief in them and that they are born for bigger things in life. Once you do this, let the magic happen. The day you align with their passion, the world is all yours.
Today, we hear inspiring stories of big names in every field. If you study their history, you will find they all struggled in few or all subjects when they were in school. Some of them were event below the average. But how did they make their mark event they did so badly in schools. There is one single reason for all their success, that they all could find their passion when they grew. Yes, they all did and today we see them as world’s leaders and role model in their specific domain.
I want to ask you a straightforward question; is your child abnormal? Or is your child normal or super intelligent? If they are good at this age, what happens to them when they grow older? Why they don’t turn out to be leaders or big inspiring people. This is an important question that we all must ask ourselves. With no development plan for our children, we never see what their passion is or their career aptitude will be. Lastly, please, please, don’t think that doctors and engineers are the only happy people in the world.
