Imagine your a 15 year old kid. Your favorite hobbies are hanging out with your friends, playing games and writing lyrics for your new band. You are just about to start vocational education and are faced with the fact that it’s time to chose the career for the rest of your life.

This is not a choise you can make as a kid, but it’s the parents who decide. More and more we are faced with kids who have to do things they actually don’t like to do. How is that possible I wonder? It’s the parents obligation to make the right choise, but that is a big dillema, because we all wan’t our kids on the top of the social ladder. We rather see our kids in an office instead of doing hard labour in construction. Unfortuanaly not every kid is equiped to be an economic, doctor or lawyer.

The more important thing is that the parents choice often is different than the childs. Solution: talk to your kids to find out their real interests and let them follow their own dreams. As a teacher it is real difficult to see a kid struggle with the fact that he/she has to find motivation on a daily basis for doing stuff they actually dislike. I try to do my best to help them and focus on the qualities of each individiual. Talking to them helps a lot, so if I can, the parents can do so to, or not?
