Pushing your kids extra hard
Dr Benne Sykes (03:56):
You see this a lot in college. So sometimes if you see a parent that didn't graduate high school, you're going to push your kid extra hard to finish high school. If you didn't go to college, you're gonna push really extra hard to go to college, but that's your dream. That's not their dream. And their dream might be different. And by finding out what interests them, they're going to be guaranteed to stick with it a long time. And then you don't have to go with the back and forth with, Oh, well this I'm just, I want him to live. And it's normal for us to want our children to live a better life than what we had when we were kids. However, when it comes to that kind of stuff, it's best not to push because what's going to happen is what if in 10 years they say, you know what, mom, I don't really want to be a lawyer.

I want to be something else. I want to be a I don't know an actress, which is totally viable, it's viable as a career profession, but there are certain things you have to do with it to be successful. And when you put all of your eggs in one basket and you get resentful, when people don't do what you think they should have done and your children, aren't going to do what they supposed to do all the time. So yeah, you have to really be careful about that. So I guess that's it for now. Thank you so much for listening and.
