In Indian context,it is very evident how parents pressurize the child to achieve something which they could not. Often a child is forced into a career which he has least interest in.Why is it so difficult for the parents to realize the child's interests and potentia? Is the generation gap to be blamed for it? Often the child revolts and his voice is supressed and he adapts to the lifestyle his parents choose for him thinking that it is destiny. It is a waste of talent.What steps can be encouraged to improve such situations?
