The truth about being supportive when it comes to education and our youth
Is school truly for everybody? Does a degree lead to genuine joy? From the beginning of our childhood, it is drilled into our minds that school is the answer to have a successful and prospering life. It sometimes feels as if school isn’t what you need to fulfill your dreams, but instead, it is the answer to satisfy the people around you. Yet in life, isn’t satisfaction progressively about finding our abilities, finding what we love or are good at, and getting a vocation that grasps our qualities?
Shouldn’t something be said about the person who doesn’t have any type of enthusiasm for attending a university? Does that mean this person is bound to nothing more than the bare minimum? There might be a ton of reasons why not everyone can benefit from studies:
1) They don’t know what to do or where to begin. Taking the first step into anything is the most difficult, but also the most important.
2) They don’t believe school can help aid in reaching their goals.
3) They walk and live life how they want. There isn’t a reason for them to conform to the norms of society.
School isn’t for everybody and that is OK. That doesn’t mean they won’t be effective in tackling roadblocks in life. Truth be told, there are numerous individuals who didn’t chase an advanced education that is now living a life they wouldn’t have gotten otherwise.

Teaching our kids to pursue what we believe is best for them isn’t the most supportive thing a parent can do. We should be there to help our kids with their dreams and be there to support them during the journey, even if the path they choose isn’t the clearest.
