Do Your Homework For Your Child’s Future
I remember a scene of my childhood when I turned to someone and said, “When I grow up I want to be a….”. Those were the days when I ended the sentences with words like ‘teacher’, ‘doctor’, ‘lawyer’,’Musician’ etc. However these days children no longer aspire to take up traditional professions and are looking to land in unexplored territory. And this is true for practically every little child.
To be honest I wasn’t sure even until my graduation .. Today, we get an instant answer even from a toddler as we ask what they want to become when they grow up.
With times and vast options, another thing that has immensely changed is the cost of living and education
. Years back we hardly had as many choices as we have today and in a way it was easy to choose from fewer options or just go by what parents chose for us. Dreaming big wasn’t a choice for everyone as it involved big money.
Today Scenario has been totally changed , Schools don’t restrict themselves only to studies but provide an overall exposure to kids from different activities & hobbies apart from sports. Even parents leave no stone unturned when it comes to providing the best to their kids and fulfill their desires..
As true to their nature, children have new ideas everyday and one day as she returned from school she said she wants to grow up to be a pilot. I realised that children today have innumerable career choices and as parents we should encourage them to follow their dreams with confidence and without worry. However what most parents forget is to be prepared both emotionally and financially for the decisions children make. When #PrincessHeer started talking about her future, we realised it was high time we did our homework and check our readiness for the future.
Do Your Homework Axis Mutual Fund
Going through some information, we came across the new investor education awareness campaign Do Your Homework by Axis Mutual Fund that encourages parents to start investing early by investing through a Systematic Investment Plan. All my arguments with my husband about still having time to save for #PrincessHeer’s education went flying out of the window when I saw the estimate current cost of the courses and then the target amount for the same courses in the years to come on ‘Do Your Homework
‘. We realised that we had already lost a couple of years and we needed to begin as soon as possible.
As a parent never take your children’s aspirations for granted and plan for your child’s future in time. And incase you are not sure, take the Do Your Homework experiment and share the results with us on social media with your plans for your child.
