Branson Brains - But Parents Put Me Down The Mine
By Kacy Carr
Lack of communication in the education system of yesterday deprived many a scholar of becoming the next Richard Branson, due to the fact the importance of having an education behind you was never first and foremost on our list of studies unlike it is today in 21st century schools.
Caring parents need to know where to draw the line and face up to reality that we are not in the position to help with our children's education. Parents I agree know what's best for their child when it comes to nurturing and preparing them for the future but when it comes to succeeding in life, then mum/dad you need to step down.
Educational instructors have trained/studied for years passing exams to take on the role of teacher/tutor passing on their knowledge to others. As caring parents it is in your child's best interest to leave the task of furthering their education to the professionals.
With no educational background and being a 15 year old school leaver what right have I to destroy this generations chance of success by teaching them what I don't know.
A career move in days gone by was to join the staff at Woolworth's, a company that never asked for papers i.e. GCSE etc on how to fill shelves, but this is all changing.
How can we possibly believe that ours kids future will be bright and rosie without qualifications. Why live in hope that our children make the right decisions in life to fulfil their dreams.
Children are influenced by their parents, but if mum/dad decides to sit back and do nothing then you as a parent have failed by taking away a lifeline for their survival.
If you are concerned about securing your child's future then do something about it now. Parents do not live forever and in some sad cases children have been orphaned from a young age with no one to point them in the right direction.
For success in days gone by we looked for support from our parents, but how could mum/dad help us to make the right decision where their lack of knowledge taught them that living a life was about trudging through the snow to work in the mill or mines.
Parents of the 21st century have come along way and understand the meaning of the word wisdom, learn by others mistakes. If it takes some ones downfall for you as a parent to come to your senses then so be it
Confront those fears of what will happen to your kids if something should happen to you by furthering their education.
If you want the initials RIP mean what they represent then make sure to do right by your kids, if you don't then you will forever turn in your grave while your children struggle in this life to survive.
