Many times, we may want to study a course, we follow our minds with little or no information about the area we want to study.
It is good to ask questions about the course we may want to study. It will give prior information about the goods as well as the challenges we are likely to face in the process.
Medicine is one of the courses parents value most in Nigeria. Many parents would even compel their children to study medicine.
To compete with their relative whose child is studying the same course or to make the child superior to relatives or neighbor child, even when the child does not like medicine.
Parents are not supposed to force the children to study a particular course but explain the advantages and disadvantages of the course the children are willing to choose.
Advise, and guide the child in the right direction. Give a solid foundation to the children. If you want your child to study a course, don’t force him, make him fall in love with it, and every other thing will fall in place without stress.
