Inspiring thoughts for unleash hidden potential are a changing agent for life. Parents have their expectations that their children will be successful man in the eye of societies. Therefore, they feel a sense of failure, if their children do not live up to them. Parent’s great emphasis is on materialistic achievement and scoring points before their friends and neighbors. Parents neglect spiritual values. Therefore, their children fall victim to these mental pressures. Children are inspired to excel in their studies, to get secure jobs that pay well, to accumulate wealth. Many parents do not give too much value on virtues such as gratitude, honesty, integrity, kindness, consideration and tolerance. Because, parents believe worldly success is more important for children than become a creative person.

They impose their value system on their children, who are under pressure to be smart, to be popular, and to excel. Children are under the impression that success means the ability to compete, conquer and defeat opposition, reject the need to establish an inner harmony with the soul.
Whether the children have the passion or not, they are, expect to attend classes on computers, music, ballet, swimming and so on, under the belief that such activities are very important for success and happiness in life. There is nothing wrong in pursuing such healthy activities if the children have an interest and have the talents required.
Parents should not create pressure upon their children to be brilliant beyond their capabilities, to be leaders when they have no leadership talent or to be star athletes when they have no sporting attributes. Because of unrealistic goals, children are forced into mental pressure. Therefore, they always feel bored. They are not able to lead a stress free life. These pressures have also the consequence of giving rise to emotional insecurity in their life. Parents should not transfer their ambitions to children and rob children’s childhood.

Cane me if you must;

Nor is it one that I could lose;
Allow me, dear father, to use it at least.”
