The tussle is on. The tussle between arts & academics, we see the reasonings on both sides of the contest and “our parents” primarily decide which path their child takes. This article delves into these decisions with a futuristic perspective for the child’s development.

Think of your child as a boat, the water, weather and the wind as events that influence the child’s behaviour, you are at the helm of things and in charge of steering the boat. Your authority and actions should only steer the boat taking into consideration all the factors that influence the direction of the boat. The same way you should always encourage your child to do what your child is interested in taking into consideration the factors that influence his/her behaviour and the repercussions thereof, while strong winds warrant a change in the boats sail, too much television can warrant a change in the families lifestyle.

Children should have enough freedom to be themselves – once they’ve learned the rules.
