YOU REPRESENT ME
As a child growing up in the house with your parents, they are constantly putting you in positions to have to be them. And if they were not successful, then you really have to be great. Under no circumstances are they going to allow you to be anything less than what they raised. And it is for these very reasons that children feel the pressure of being their parents. Do parents mean this to be offensive, absolutely not. They know and understand what the real world is truly about. So with that in mind, your parents even want you pursuing things in life that have the least risk possible Something more stable where you can have a job even coming out of school. But are there other reasons as to why the parents want to apply the pressure to their children about life? Well, yes, there are a few reasons as to why.
PARENTING PEER PRESSURE
Sometimes the parents have the people around them that they don’t want to have to address. This is especially important when the parent/s have professional places of employment around other people with successful kids. Now you have a situation where everyone in the work environment are comparing their children to one another. And if you are the parent with the kid slacking then you have to hear about it. Here is the defining moment when you will be the parent who will be even tougher on your child or less tough. Now, it’s easy for people to tell someone to mind their business, but the image in certain environments are too difficult to shake. When your family is perceived to be out of balance, it can hurt the parent.
Your parents can want the world for you , but if you don’t have it for yourself then what does it truly mean? See, every parent wants their child to be a star and shine. Yet that is not how the world actually works. The real world is a place where the child has to want it more. Because once they step into society, they are going to have to make some serious decisions. So how they enter the world is on you, but how they continue to pursue is going to be on them.
