career of your choice

Making a career choice is a big decision as most of us are not sure what we really want to take up as our career. When you yourself are confused it’s natural that your parents would be even more scared. At times parents do not give freedom to their children to pick up a career of their choice because they are afraid that you may choose something that would not fit in your capabilities or you’re not matured enough to make up your own decisions and may later end up regretting on it. So in most cases parents don’t quite agree on you making a decision regarding your career. 

Consent of your parents in the decision you take is very important and having them by your side as a support system is very essential for a successful life. So it’s time to prove and convince your parents that we are mature enough to take correct decisions regarding your career.

  1. Make sure that you are sure about your decision

It is important to make sure whether you are sure about taking up this career. There are various online tests which you could give to know whether which career will be best for you and are you willing to do it. You could also take up career counselling to know more about your desired field. When you are sure about the career of your choice it will easy for you to convince your parents. 

  1. Do a good research about the field

After making yourself sure of the career of your choice, do a detailed research on everything related to the field like its benefits, fees, classes etc.  So when you parents may ask you anything related to it you are able to answer all their doubts without any hesitation.

  1. Explain calmly and nicely

The crucial part comes up when you have to explain your parents, so when you are prepared with everything approach your parents when they are free to listen to you and calmly explain them everything that you will be happy taking up this career and would not regret on it later.

  1. Tell the positive side

Give every detail about the field but highlight the positive points more this will convince them that this career is good for you and suits your capabilities.

  1. Tell that you’re interested to do it and nobody is forcing you

Often parents feel that children take up decisions by looking or listening to others or due to peer pressure. So tell your parents why you chose this career and nobody has forced you in your decisions. You took this up because you’re interested to do this and it suits your abilities. Explain them that if the career will be of your interest you will work hard for it.

Only because your parents aren’t listening to you that does not mean they do not love you, they are simply scared that you may not end up messing your life. Remember our parents never think bad about us they are harsh at times just because they care and wish to see us successful in our life. Try your best to convince them in every way possible but sweetly and calmly don’t get angry on them or hate them for not accepting your decision, they may take time but will understand you soon. If they still do not understand, you can get them in touch with your career counsellor so that they can explain them in much convincing manner.
